    There have been two outages this month caused by me doing stuff that exceeded the amount of memory allocated to the server. Both were corrected as soon as I could, neither will happen again on my watch. (Sometimes you have to move fast and break stuff )

    どぞう I'm working on an offline version just in case I provoke further outages so people won't miss out on docs for even the slightest moment Of course, the limitations of PDF mean that my lovingly-crafted animations won't be there, nor embedded YouTube vids.

    The work you are doing on this is appreciated BeeVee, and while it is frustrating and a bit worrying when the manual goes offline, I totally understand it's just a sign that you're busy..

    Just to add my tuppence worth to what everyone else has been saying, I think the online documentation is great, but there are times when I have to work without internet acess, so an offline version is important. I'd be happy with a straight mirror of the online one, with all your lovely animated gifs, but if a PDF is a more economical option from a file size point of view, then so be it. After all, I still like hardcopy books. I'll cope.

    Just curious though - will you be compiling all the documents which went online only? 2018, 2019 and 2020?

    That's a good point, thanks, Kyuzo/Derek. I hadn't even considered previous versions... Let me ponder on that.

    - it occurs to me that what's in 2020 will be true for earlier post-2015 versions, there will just be some things that don't exist if you only have an earlier version.

    Flipping double post again... Mods, feel free to delete.


    I suppose if there's any way to retain the 'new to 2020' or 'new to 2019', then it would save users of previous versions looking for various features while covering all bases.

    Out of interest, when was the online only docs introduced? Was it 2015? I think I upgraded from LW9 to LW2015. Just curious.

    The wiki-based docs were introduced with LightWave 2018. 11.x had an addendum PDF, 2015 had a full PDF rewrite, and then I started the wiki... The LightWave history pages have a "changelog" of sorts where I have put the New To pages for 2018 and 2019.

    Reasonably. The NVidia driver version number might be a few out. Why?
