Manual status?
on: May 31, 2018, 01:09:28 PM
The video tutorials you've provided are helpful for what they cover, but inferior overall to a manual as they are necessarily incomplete in the interest of time and not searchable.

Do you know when a standard manual will be produced?

I understand that some features may be changing frequently so a fixed document manual may not be practical.

But a manual broken down into sub sections (even just html links) that could be updated independently would be immensely valuable for more obscure functionality.   I would think it would save you time in the long run vs constantly answering such questions in the forum. 

Also, it's sometimes not clear even when something is explained whether it applies to the Mac version, iPad version or both.

We started working on it few months ago. But we are not writing it fast. It is a always a choice to add new features, or write manual. And usually i decide to add features.
I was trying to find somebody who could write it, but it is not easy. If anybody here know such person or company please let me know.

Thanks, I appreciate the honest reply.   No doubt it's more interesting to add functionality than write documentation.

As a totally new user - impressed with all the options and possibilities, but also hopelessly lost - I would be very interested in what the status of a manual is?
Thanks

Sorry, i don't have good news about the manual.
Big changes are coming to Artstudio Pro, so writing manual now is not a good idea.

Thank you for replying. Does “big change” mean it would be a waste of time to learn how the current version is working - and what is the expected time frame for disclosure of the changes?

Well... it will be not so big. Mainly I'm going to simplify Brush/Color Editors. The rest will get only few minor fixes.
