i guess you refer to LaTeX or something, "compiling" the docs on the go when rolling out latest builds. could be possible, difficult to maintain though, as it is a new "language" to learn :D

Indeed, I thought about LaTeX, but discarded the idea quickly because it would be way to complicated. A good trade-off between usability/looks and ability to update would be HTML.

We'd have each chapter in a separate file and they would be plain text. Both vital features for submitting changes to SVN (binary formats are absolutely inadequate for version-control, means: no word or anything like it).

When we have HTML, people need to modify the files in a plain text editor, no fancy graphical editors as they (most certainly) would mess up the format and render version control useless.

Most other plain-text formats which could be rendered to PDF would be ok, too, though I'd prefer HTML.

Cheers.

Just saw this today.  Don;t have time to read it right now, but do so as soon as I can and then comment.

On a quick glance it looks very good.

Thanks for the effort.

Hi,

I was reading the forum so as a noob i can gather info.
And i just registerd after reading your post to say that the pdf is great!

It would be great if you add "Remote USB" chpater and scripting tutorials (maybe the entire syntax)

Thanks
And keep up the good work

i seconds this.
maybe also a small tips & tricks sections where some things like this get explained:

- how to save energy (disable LCD - using either headphone jack [careful s3is/s5is owners - stereo headphones prolly arent good) or a piece of plastic) - great for timelapses & the best part: motion detection still works!

oh and by the way, maybe you can add that the bracketing overrides also work in custom timer mode (not only continuous mode). most cameras do have the Custom Timer mode (some dont have the continuous mode i heard) so this is a way to still use bracketing. if you set the timer to whatever time and the number of shots to lets say 5, then 5 bracketed shots will be taken.

You're welcome!  Glad you found it useful!


Thanks everyone for the comments and suggestions.  I haven't done much to the guide in the last couple weeks but I expect to get a good bit done this weekend.  I've finished adding the names of indicators on Page 6 and I incorporated some of the suggestions already made.  When there's a CHDKGuideInProgress02.pdf available I'll announce it...so stop checking for it! (LOL)

Really great, Graystar!
This makes CHDK a complete user-friendly "package" of the sort I would expect to pay great money for.
Beautiful work!
You smite like a girl!
