User Manual?
on Jun 21, 2011 at 8:30:02 pm

Getting down to the dirty business of learning this stuff and one thing I really miss is the user manual. Is there one? Or is it reading through the pages and pages of help documents?

Sometimes I just like to print the reading material and soak it all in. Guess I'm one of the few who RTFM.

It's sort of burried...but Gerry Found it. I have a copy of the PDF on my desktop and am now starting to read.

[Gerry Fraiberg] "The long and winding road will eventually lead to the FCP X Help page. Too bad it isn't more readily available.

Click on the link: For more information, visit http://www.apple.com/finalcutpro.

On the FCP page, click on Tech Specs.

On the Tech Specs page, click on Explore third-party plug-ins, tutorials and other useful resources for Final Cut Pro X. View Resources >

On the Resources page, scroll down to Support > Final Cut Pro Support Page. Click on the link.

On the Final Cut Pro X Support Page, scroll down to Get Started > User Manuals.

Or, follow this link: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4681

When you click on a manual, you get online help. It would be nice if there is a downloadable PDF. The workaround I used: In the upper right hand corner, click on the printer icon and select: Book - Final Cut Pro Help. Instead of my printer, I selected Bull Zip printer, which is a utility to print to PDF. I now have a PDF file which I will sync to my iPad."

You mean you literally printed it? Is there no pdf available? Jeez.

I spend 10 hours of my day minimum in front of a screen so I prefer to read it on paper... I did print double sided.

It is available as a PDF if you "print" to PDF.

But it's not a pdf - it's a help file. When I choose print to pdf it creates a pdf of only the cover page. If there's a trick I'm missing I'd appreciate knowing.
Thanks!
Bob

Where's the darn manual?
on Jun 22, 2011 at 2:10:15 pm

Okay, so now I have a pdf of the help file, but the links within it are disabled and there's no index. For crying out loud, is apple going to give us a manual?!

OK - I'm new to iMac, and in fact I'm on a PC now at work.

Tried following the above info to obtain a pdf, but I still only get the first page in pdf form. I have only tried this on my PC, won't get to see my Mac until the weekend (I work away from home).

So, is my problem specific to PC or am I missing something.

Here's what I have done...

I have nitropdf and bullzip installed.

I select the Printer Icon on the top right of the webpage help.apple.com/finalcutpro/mac/10.0/#

and then click on the Final Cut Pro Help link (BTW the word "Book" is not a hyperlink in my broswer), I then selected the pdf printer, and all I get is a pdf of page 1.

any Help very gratefully appreciated.
