RISC OS manuals initiative gathers paceBy Chris Williams. Published: 2nd Dec 2003, 15:47:35 | Permalink | Printable
Artworks 2, check. Photodesk, check.IC Software is continuing its quest to produce and print manuals for RISC OS software and has this week opened a new website detailing its plans.
You may recall that IC Software printed and distributed manuals for the popular Artworks 2 vector graphics package in time for the South East 2003 show. It now has set its sights on an updated manual for the bitmap editing suite, Photodesk - if you're interested in such a publication, drop IC Software a suitable email.
All of IC Software's manuals, we're told, are bound as 4-ring A5 folders, allowing new sections may be added when they become available. It's a format not too dissimilar from Castle's recently produced user guides.
Putting together a book or manual for the RISC OS market can be quite tricky, financially speaking, however owing to a "special agreement with a commercial printer", IC Software say they're able to produce manuals in relatively small quantities. IC Software are also open to any suggestions for future titles, should you have any.
"We realise that since most developers have stopped producing paper-based documentation, many users are crying out for up-to-date printed manuals", Ian Chamberlain of IC Software commented in this week's announcement. "We'd like to hear from these users so that we can help them."
