  • Hi Rob, There was a mention last year that we'd have access to a pdf version of the entire documentation library similar to that which was released back in February of last year. Is that in the works for R2? Any idea of when we might see that made available? Thanks!

  • I agree with Mitch!!! An offline, version of this documentation with linked chapters (i.e.e a PDF or similar) would be of huge benefit to us, with mobile devices, and isolated network environments rendering the online help useless.
