Consider putting a feature request into bugzilla for different formats
of RR docs. The docs are well written, and comprehensive. I believe RR
said they come out to 900 pages or something, in PDf format.
The current RR docs are just a kind of hypertext. Think of it as a
small web browser, but closely integrated into the IDE.
Once you get used to the docs interface you will see you can very
rapidly switch from script editor to Transcript dictionary, to
background material. Despite being forced to use the mouse. Like it or
not you are going to need your mouse to use with Runrev.
Couple of other pointers:
- Right click on a keyword in the script editor to define it in the
- There is a preference for the IDE having the tooltips that shows
either the property name, or the description of what the property does.
Hope this helps,
