Fileman 22.2 Getting Started Manual

Kevin Toppenberg's picture

Let me start by saying that this was the best written manual I have
encountered in a long time. I very much appreciated the conversational
tone of the language used. I was able to read it from start to finish in
one go, something that I have never been able to do with traditional VA
manuals.

Well Done!

Here are a few suggested changes that I found:

Intruduction.
Don't use IFCAP abbreviation without defining it.

Page 5:
"In addition, development teams for some packages have added a Graphical
User Interface (GUI) for a windows-like look and feel."
-- Does "windows" refer to Microsoft Windows? If so, should this be
capitalized?

Page 7 (last paragraph)
I like the joke, but not that one has to go to the next page to see the
punch line.
Perhaps keep it part of the same paragraph? E.g.
... "with an incorrect response, the world will end, and all life as we
know it
will cease to exist. . . . Wait, that’s wrong. All that happens is ... "

Page 17
Example does not appear correct. It has "T,Brad" I think that it should
be
lastname,firstname, or "BRAD,T".

Page 32 bottom
-- it would be nice to prevent widow line, and force it to group with the
rest of the
example ouput text

Page 44 bottom
-- another widow line

Thanks again,

Kevin
