Finally I have completed the manual. This is 24 pages long and about 13.6 MB in size. You can download the CBZ file here:

Read this on your iPad only..! B)



Please do report inaccuracies, suggest places requiring improvement in design, and any additions/subtractions in the text.

Hope you like it! :)

Very nice work. I do not have access to the beta, this manual already gives me some idea what to expect! Some suggestions:
- page 8: You can add the sentence: "Info about CRiOS and the possibility to rate it is provided here."
- page 12: for a newbie it may be unclear how to get the metadata into comic archives. The information provided may be a bit limited. Maybe you can add that you'll need ComicRack for windows as well.
- page 12/13: relies on knowledge of lists. A new user of comicrack may not have any clue how to make these lists, and how to get them on CRiOS...
- page 14: typo in the title of the page: "Toogle" instead of "Toggle"
- page 20: typo in title: "Prefernces" instead of "Preferences"

I'm not so sure about the comic sans font. I liked the system font you used in the PDF prototype (this post), but that's just personal preference.

PS. I hope to see CRiOS appear in the app store soon!! :)

@faethon: Thanks for the suggestions & those typos. Will take care of these during the next update. I'm myself still not sure about the font. I'm waiting for suggestions regarding the font & then will decide changing it, if consensus says so.

But there are still some UI changes coming...

Ok 600, having fun? Don't you think it is time you stop fooling around and resume your duties :evil: :evil: :evil: CRW manual needs an update... :)

For this I honestly suggest:

1) cYo, do please integrate CRW manual as it deserves

2) 600, please do add someway for us to reward your work on these manuals (donation, gift list in amazon or the like...)

All in all, so many many thanks again!

When I grow old (& totally useless), in my last times, if I were to think about the happy moments of my life, I shall look back to the time spent on this forum & the excellent people I 'met' here. That's enough for me, perezmu. No matter how many times I thank cYo, it will never be enough, for without ComicRack, I don't think I would have been half as happy as I am. I just prey to God that cYo lives longer than me, so that till I'm alive, ComicRack is ON. :)

Thanks for the shout-out in your doc!

Any chance of adding the project URL there too? I know it's not a clickable doc, but it would clarify that it's a separate thing from CR proper.

Hmm..writing the project url won't look good in a manual which we are supposed to keep light on text. And, as you said, it is a CBZ file, so no clickability is there. The user would have to search google for comictagger & go there by himself.

I think I can put up screenshots of the Google code page in keeping with the design/style of the manual. Will that help? :unsure:

Also, I have a little suggestion for you: Focus on the MAC/OSX side of ComicTagger. Windows users already have ComicVine Scraper (although it is a very good option when you do not want to fire up ComicRack & still do the scraping). Once CRiOS gets released, MAC users will get introduced to the idea of scraping comics, and you should be ready for that, for they have no option but ComicTagger.

p.s. I don't know if it would be possible, but a nicely designed website with a $1.99 price on ComicTagger would satisfy most MAC users.
