You may want to contact Vectric Support with that question.

Is there a Vectric User Manual available for any of their products, in any language? I can't say that I have looked exhaustively, but I've never seen one. I know, I know, there are tons of helpful video tutorials available from Vectric and the Forum is filled with years and years of helpful discussion and illustration.

The only problem with the current, impressive collections of information? There is apparently no comprehensive indexing system for this vast body of knowledge and it can take lengthy, and often frustrating, searches to find specific, detailed information....or worse, not find it at all.

As someone who, by cracky, has been conditioned since long-distant youth to use and learn from books, journals, and newspapers (remember those quaint things?) I have to admit I often long for a comprehensive Vectric User's Manual, or at least an online "living index"...a sort of Wiki-Vectric-pedia. I'd pay for it, too.

There isn't a German translation for the 9.5 manual I'm afraid. Given it's one the web, might be worth looking if Google Translate does a decent job? A more "official" translation for should be on the horizon for a future release (intentionally vague :D but hopefully not far off).

I think so http://docs.vectric.com/docs/V9.5/. It's accessible from the software Help menu as well.

The online help (Help Contents) is fully interactive so you can click on any part of any picture and drill down to the relevant section. I find that a lot quicker and easier than trying to got through an index for a term that might be different to what I'm thinking. Also, as it's web browser based it's fully searchable with all the tools built into the web browser of your choice.

You could send the PDF version of the Help (hover the mouse near the bottom of the Help page and choose Single Page then PDF Version) to a print service if you want a bound manual. Someone was offering that service here in the early days of Aspire and I bought one but never used it.

Easy to access the manual. If you don't have internet access on the computer you use a Vectric product with you may want to save the PDF version to your computer. That way you can do quick searches by using the Find/Find on This Page functions. A lot easier than turning pages on a printed copy.
