PDF User Manual?



Is it possible to download a PDF version of the user manual, as I find it difficult to use BYE and having to switch between the main program and the user manual, I tend to print manuals out and use that way, but no matter how hard I look, I can't find a PDF version anywhere on this site.

Has any advance been made on producing a pdf version of the User Manual?


I have wasted a lot of paper trying to print the Help version - typically pages get chopped off on the right hand side.


It does not make sense to me to have to search through a Help window while I am trying to use BYE 3.1. I have two screens going, and during observations, have up to six different windows open already. I don't want to open another one.


I think there is a good argument here for a hard-copy manual.

My apologies for not responding sooner but the conversion was not as perfect as I at first thought it to be, it cut/split some of the graphics across two pages.


So I was trying other methods, and I failed, my attempts cut some of the graphics down the right side, but my son came up with the goods, a link to the document is: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1k3wqvk0kpfggnz/AAD5tFh-16Vh-jEdHQ4jFeC3a?d1=0


And Guylian if you think this conversion is acceptable you are more than welcome to use it, after all it is you're intellectual property.

Thanks so much for making us aware of the .chm-to-.PDF conversion software. The zamzar.co worked beautifully for me.  I, too, like to have a printed copy of manuals, although, the manual for SkyTools 3 is way too big, around 250 pages! That's about an entire tree's-worth of paper.   {^0^}

Thank you Milky Way, The http://www.zamzar.co...ert/chm-to-pdf/ link worked perfectly, but the http://www.chmtopdf.com/ download program only managed the front and last pages, all the other pages were blank.


But really! Thanks a lot.


And thank you to all who took the trouble to comment, I know there are a lot of tutorials out there, I've watched a few, but I must be old fashioned, I like a hard copy to refer back to, but thank you one and all.
