Title: TBX 6.11 docs in .mobi/Kindle
Post by Charles Starrett on Dec 27th, 2014, 5:33pm

I've recently returned to Tinderbox and am trying to "do it right" this time by reading the documentation (especially given all the changes in version 6). To make the reading easier, I used an open source app called "Calibre" http://calibre-ebook.com/ to convert the documentation to .mobi so I can read it on my Kindle.

The conversion was surprisingly easy, especially considering that I tend to avoid reading documentation.  ::)

Anyhow, here's a Dropbox link to my bare-bones .mobi conversion of the current documentation in case it's useful for anyone else:

Enjoy!

This is amazing!  Thank you so much.  I dislike reading text in the Mac help viewer, so I was reading a PDF of the 5.12 document until now.

This is great. Is it in PDF anywhere? My preferred technique for learning new SW is actually reading a printed manual!

Thanks -- Barbara
