Here is the new version of the QuickManual.

Changelog:
  • Changed front page setup
  • Deleted pages detailing installing and downloading
  • Added pages for reading modes and exporting comics
  • Added eye-candy icons (credit to the free iconset 'Kids Icons by Everaldo_Yellowicon')
  • Many screenshots changed
  • Changed last page
Unfortunately, The current size is 1.04 Mb. I could not reduce the size further. :(

DJVU sucks. I have a better quality PDF at 746 KB, but it can't run at ComkicRack startup, hence DJVU. :angry:

So, as in the last version, while the text and background images are fine, the screenshots appear somewhat blurred when viewed in fullscreen. I guess that is our compromise for reducing filesize!

I am yet to get any feedback on the updated version of the QM. Any page/segment that is not useful to the newbie? Anything essential that I should add?

I was thinking maybe I should add something about Docking the Browser. Any suggestions?

Thanks cYo! :)

I have 3 queries for you. If you wish to reply, please tell me:
  • What is the maximum size of the QuickManual you are willing to accept?
  • You have named the 'QuickManual' as 'Quick Introduction' in the Help menu, and 'ComicRack Introduction' in the DJVU file. Please decide at a name, and tell me if I should change the name in the front page to whatever you say.
  • Is there any other feature that I have missed in the QuickManual?

1 MB feels about right.

I think "ComicRack Introduction - A Quick Guide" is nice :)

I do not know if it is a good idea to add the version info at the bottom.

first of all! +10000 Karma to you! it looks great and comes really handy! (i wish it has been there when i started use CR some time ago :D)

My question: Is there any interest for a german translated version for this QuickGuide? Not really for me, as im fine with the english version but perhaps cYo could reach some more user and CR could gain more popularity!

In the beginning, I wanted to make a French version of the manual but it has so much images overlapping with the text, so much screenshots that were in English, other stuff that I'm not thinking about at the moment that I completely dumped the idea on the side of the road and drove on it... and then engaged reverse and drove on it once more. And, then, I just made a burnout on it and flew away.

But, I think I'll give it another shot someday when I don't already do this sort of thing at work anymore :)
Working on re-uploading the FR manuals.
