At A Glance:  GLD Tutorial Videos

Quick, easy demonstrations of some of GLD's powerful design features can be seen here.  These videos demonstrate features available in GLD2016.  Our interface has remained very similar between versions of GLD and some of these videos were prepraed using earlier versions.  Users of earlier versions can also benefit from viewing any of the videos as all features in the previous versions have been carried forward, and in many cases enhanced, in the latest GLD2016.  Watch one or all of the videos by selecting the topics below:
