    Hi Bjarne,

    That is a great idea! I'll make sure our team gets your suggestion and hopefully we can implement this soon.

    There is an easier way:  Searching is something that Google does very well.

    Set up the help files as a static web site.  Include a search box on it.

     

    Also:

    Set up the help files as a PDF.  This allows users to carry it with them.  Search in PDF is a lot clunkier -- generally you can only search for one thing at a time.

     

    Both should have a good table of contents and a good index, and should be cross referenced.

     

    ***

     

    If you're serious about it, with the web site, but an email link on the bottom of each page for people to email corrections and confusions about it.

    User Guide Search and a downloadable PDF file would make the User Guide significantly more usable.  At present it is very difficult to use.  The addition of a table of contents and/ or an index would help.

    Hi Tom,

    Here is a PDF (searchable) version of the Luminar 3 User Guide: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1hQx5aAC0JgMFjP02TA2W5bsLi4564Mre6bi_s5FUhCs/edit#heading=h.w4w0j3iidt86

    Angela,

    The PDF guide is helpful, but it's not downloadable or readable in any other PDF viewer.  We are forced to use the Google Docs viewer, which is pathetic.  Can you let us download a copy and use a decent PDF viewer?
