The ComicRack Manual 6th edition is now officially released!
http://www.mediafire.com/download/2r0mfrz33rnhba7/ComicRack_Manual_(6th_Ed).pdf

Format: PDF

No of pages: 100

Size: 20.27 MB

“The 6th edition of the ComicRack Manual is before you. This ends a gap of almost 2 years from the preceding edition. We experienced more than 25 builds of ComicRack during this period.

The past 2 years have seen the release of ComicRack apps for Android & iOS (for which we have separate manuals and shall not be discussed anymore). ComicRack for Windows also had a very eventful journey. Notable changes were new metadata fields, multi-click stacks/groups, query language for smart lists, and support for custom fields & shared databases. A large number of new (and very good) scripts were developed. When I sat down to write the scripts chapter, I realised that the scripts are so complicated that they deserve to have manuals & wikis of their own, and hence have limited myself to just providing the reader with overviews.

As I said last time, there is no end to explaining things, and increasing the number of pages with every edition just for the heck of ‘detailed’ explanation is not worthwhile. So, I have managed to ‘trim’ the manual to 100 pages (compare with the 179 pages of the 5th edition!). With this edition, I’ve also merged the ‘Tips & Tricks’ manual (never mind if you never heard of it!).

The preface will not be complete without me thanking my dear friend kenjio, also a senior member of the ComicRack team. He has ‘beta-tested’ this edition, giving me his valuable suggestions & proof-reading the words. May you always stay happy, my friend! :)

I shall never forgot to thank cYo for his ultimate vision of the best comic reading and managing software ever created, and the geniuses at Adobe, for making InDesign, Acrobat, and Illustrator, my tools for creating this humble manual.

Old readers will see a radical change in design of the manual. Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed making it!”
How can you help the ComicRack Manual Project:

Please download the manual and give it a read. Please point out any errors and I'll try my best to rectify them in the next update. If you dislike anything in the manual (or the whole of it), please feel free to give constructive criticism. In case you like it, do give me some good karma :)
I would also request all the active users to redirect new users' queries in the help section to the manual.
(if, obviously, the manual already has what they want to know ;-))

Great work :)
I'll post it on the front page this weekend.

Just a little nitpicking: I'll miss a sync chapter.

I deliberately left all the sync features to be dealt with in the ios/android manuals.

p.s. I'll soon update the scripts index. But first I've to update the online manual.
