Local User Guide v14?
« on: September 26, 2018, 02:26:01 pm »
I previously (to v14) used the Local (to my machine) copy of the User Guide.  This allowed me to look up Help while travelling on the bus (1 hour each way).  I can't seem to find the v14 version.  Is there one?  How do I download and install it?

Well, that WAS obvious.  ("That was irony, ")

But thanks, hugely!  Would never have found it.  I tried searching for it in the (online) Help and it didn't find it.  Perhaps because I searched for "Local User Guide"  not "Local Help".

Now that I have installed the local Help File from the EAUserGuide.msi file (using the Start | Help | Explore Online Resources | Install Help Locally command), I have searched it and found: 1 Entry for Local Help and NONE for Local User Guide!

Come on Sparxians, what is it; a Help file or User Guide?

I find the use of a good modelling tool can help to ensure semantic consistency ... oh ...

You're addressing the wrong guys. EA has not been designed with EA since when it has been, well, designed there has been no EA.

It might not have been in the beginning, but I think they use EA now to develop EA. I'm not sure however how much higher level (functional) analysis gets done.
