Not only am I outside the box, I have lost hold of it and am plummeting
swiftly into the Red Sea.
Use the Red Button, which has presumably been removed from its original
"save" action. It can mean, "Help me figure out what I should do,
because I am lost." But the actual label on it should be more
business-like, perhaps "Start here." The Red Button will be outside the
usual "HELP" interface, but may merely be a shortcut into the
"beginners'" section of help. Users who are up to speed will not be
bothered by the Red Button and will ignore it.
