Can anyone recommend a good reference book for Inventor? I have several books that are tutorials, but if I have trouble with a step there is no further information. The help menu often says something that does not correlate with what happens in the program; i.e. "Do A and B will occur." When I do A, C occurs (or nothing happens).

I am just now learning (r4) and need simple things that aren't covered adequately in the help menu. Example: The help pages refers to the Create View button, Drawing Manager Toolbar, and Custom View button. I can't find any of these and they do not show up in the help index. I have already found a dozen examples like this.

Hover over each button and it will provide a tool
tip giving the button name.  I also believe that in the help they list each
icon and give it's name..

There are pictures of these mystery buttons in the help pages, but I can't find them on any of the toolbars. I have also done as you suggest and waited for the tooltip to be sure that the help didn't have the wrong picture. No luck. That is why I am hoping to find a good reference manual for Inventor (even if it is for a later version it would probably help). I always have a couple of reference books at hand for AutoCAD.
