I have bought software (Acrobat) that only had a PDF manual and I
really don't like it. If you already have a version, know how to use
it and are updating, and there's not such a learning curve, it's
good. And if you have a big harddrive and keep it on your box, then
it's always right there. But when I am new to a program, having a
manual (the way I actually learn my software) is imperative and I can
find things about 5 times faster in a book.
I read that crummy Fontographer manual cover to cover at least twice
(there was a big lap in time between my first digitized font and the
second)....with Moye's book in between. Wish there was something
else to read about the technical, digital aspects of font
design....so the manual is one of the things I'm looking forward to

That makes sense.
- Only different in your mind. You must unlearn what you have learned.
- Adventure, Excitement, A Jedi craves not these things.
- Anger...fear...aggression. The dark side of the Force are they.
- A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack.
- Do, or do not. There is no try.
