Where is the 'Tools Manual' for M2M Studio?


#1

The old IDEs had a “Tools Manual” that fully described the tools, and walked you through the process of creating, building, downloading and running an application - with screenshots.

Where is the equivalent for M2MStudio?

The “Cheat Sheets” are nice, but they don’t show the screenshots - which is particularly important when the text is obfuscated by unfamiliar terms like “perspectives”, etc… :confused:


#2

I guess the Help given with the M2M Studio is nice and contains screenshots as well wherever required… Most of the things are answered by searching in the HELP provided… But i think a proper document is required in order to know more about M2M since there are many gud things to explore here… :smiley: …May be Jamie will look into this and some document will be provided with the future release…

I haven’t seen any!

All that I’ve seen is just text based, and the text doesn’t always exactly match the actual on-screen experience

Not really; eg, viewtopic.php?f=78&t=3436

Absolutely!

Awneil, if you open the help, on M2M Studio User Guide/Build System/Project creation/Project import I think that explains the issue refered.
Anyway the help is full of screen shots. Wich version are you using?


#5

Ah - so it is! :blush:

I’d just been looking at the “Cheat Sheets” - which are text-only. :frowning:

But there still isn’t a proper introductory guide for the complete newcomer that explains the concepts to you, outlines the tools, and then walks you through the process of creating a simple project, building it, downloading it, and running it.

Added an item in the tasks list to see how (and where) to document that properly.
