To use the Style Guide template:
1 - download and publish EnterpriseManager (if not already published)
2 - download and publish the Style Guide
3 - go to http://<yourserver>/template/Help_StyleGuideOverview.aspx and follow the instructions
Thanks for the feedback. You are right, the Style Guide has a lot of training material and tips that are very good for first users but that might get in the way as you get more experienced. We have had that feedback and we will do something about it in the future (e.g. your suggestion is a very good idea).
For now what you can do is to create your own striped down version of the template and just leave there the stuff you use more frequently.
