    Online Manual

    I agree, it looks great, but being set as spreads (2 pages per screen) makes it v. difficult to view on an iPad.
    Any chance of a version which is set as single pages for those of us who work on small screens and keep our pdf manuals on an iPad for ease of use?

    for the module part it's only a small introduction. The online manual for modules is much more detailled

    I think you misunderstand, I have saved the pdf but when I open it the document is set to double page spreads and therefore when viewing it on an iPad it has to be magnified and scrolled after each page turn which makes it difficult to use for reference. i wonder if it is possible to make a single page version available for iPad use. I have all my pdf manuals on my iPad for convenience.

    We are aware of this problem and will fix it in a forthcoming round of releases/updates.
