    I have to agree with vncnt,

    First i taught it is because of my connection speed but the pages load really much slower than anticipated.

    I apologize for criticizing and i only mean to makes it even better or nearly perfect.

    I have looked through some of the online docs and also notice the delay in displaying the particular page.

    I was trying to view the tutorial videos on how to use the command port but you cannot expand the videos to full-screen and it's difficult to see the text being shown in the videos!

    Be sure to use the link at the bottom of every page to report bugs. Not so much here.

    I agree, a wiki format makes much more sense and better suits an evolving application. The search function works solidly as well; I had no problem looking up information on things.

    Only had a few views in the docs, itīs extremely slow to load..and I just canīt tolerate waiting for them to load unfortunately, I hope this somehow can get better, otherwise..try and put it down in another format as well.
    will check again, maybe it during certain periods becomes overloaded with traffic? especially right now after release?

    Atlassian Confluence (the engine behind this documentation) can export PDF if the administrator enables it.

    I like the docs.. very good. But like I posted earlier.. I would like to have a local copy, as I'm not always able to use internet. I would care less if that version is out of date, too. But I don't know if that's possible. I do know that confluence can export to pdf however, which certainly is good enough for me at least. But like I said.. I don't know how you guys at LWG feels about it?

    Confluence will export single pages as PDF. To export the entire space you need space privileges.

    I think they have all the rights they need. I'm thinking they could do an export. Not give the right to us. I suspect that would be quite taxing on their server

    You can always hit the YouTube button to watch the video on YouTube itself, or the fullscreen button at the bottom right of each video.

    I understand that several people on this thread would like a PDF version of the docs, but they aren't quite as simple or linear as the previous documentation. If I remember correctly, we did do an experiment with pdf output, but the result was not only pretty ugly, but also because the docs are not paginated like the previous manual was, there are pages of mainly wasted space or ones consisting of a picture and so on. The PDF from Confluence is not going to look like the 2015 docs where the look was not a secondary consideration. Furthermore, the animations I put for many things are designed to aid comprehension, and won't be included in a PDF version.

    Just so you know...

    To be honest, I could live with that Something is better than nothing in a pinch.

    Another vote/request for a downloadable PDF version.

    Also, as pointed out in another thread, the Docs do not function properly when opened on iPad (possibly all iOS-based Safari).

    I prefer the online version, much more adequate for an evolving application.

    If there's a pdf should be parsed automatically, without giving extra work to doc's maintainers. Something like LaTeX
