    Love the new docs.lightwave3d.com! Great Job BeeVee & Co!

    Have been poking around https://docs.lightwave3d.com/ all night and this morning and just wanted to say great job to BeeVee and the Lightwave / NewTek crew for moving to the new ehelp platform.

    Especially excited because, having the pleasure of using Confluence for my day-gig, I know how easy it can be to update! Super stoked to see where it goes from here, especially with the quick examples. I used this one last night: https://docs.lightwave3d.com/display...mitive+Emitter and there's loads of other great ones in there.

    I'm glad we're all on the hunt for bugs and offering positive feedback for changes. Thanks for the great communication and setting the foundation for success!

    Yay! Pleased you like it. I have beaten my head against the wall several times with how stupid Confluence seems to me at times, but in the main I think it has turned out okay. It will be interesting to see how things turn out with more than one version on it...

    Woooow. I still have not had a through review on the documentation and i simply clicked one of the links on your post via my phone and it is fantastic on small phone screen.

    Dear Beeve, i think you are going to recieve lots of complain coming from insomania community so until then accept my sincere thanks.

    Looked at the doc's and came across a minor error. The text mentions an image of the Cow and it's of the Alien Emissary. Don't recall the page ATM. Otherwise, so far it's looking excellent!

    I haven't upgraded yet, but linked thru to take a peek, and that is a wonderfully clean design. Well done!

    I hope more examples can easily be added to the online Help. A centralized, official place to find them is A Good Thing.

    Maybe LWG can put it on a thumbdrive for everybody at U$50.

    It takes 8 ... 12 seconds to load a new page and 1 ... 3 seconds to uncollapse a menu item.
    This is not practical at all.

    Also, the Reference feels incomplete.

    The manual looks nice.
    But the interaction is extremely slow. It's not something to make jokes about when time=money.
