For some reason, when I downloaded BFX 9, I missed downloading a manual, and I only see a few short features guides on the BFX website. My NLE's not connected to the web, so "help" doesn't work. Does anyone know if there a PDF manual available?

You can also prompt this to launch by opening a file from the OS level called "wwhelp.htm". On the Mac it's located here -
Macintosh HD :: Applications :: Boris FX™ 9.3 :: Documentation :: wwhelp :: wwhimpl :: common :: html

On the PC it's located here -
C:\Program Files\Boris FX, Inc\Boris FX 9.3\Documentation\wwhelp\wwhimpl\common\html

One last note - if you're having difficulties opening the file itself, are you using FireFox as your default browser? If so, try opening it in Safari or Internet Explorer.

No problem launching it.

When Internet Explorer loads, it saw some ActiveSCRIPT calls and asked me if i wanted to allow them. Barely paying attention, I assumed IE was telling me it couldn't connect to the web, then i assumed the documentation is on line.

By taking an additional 3 seconds to READ the message on screen, I allowed activescript to run and have my manual now.

Thanks for taking the time to respond.
