How to have the complete user guide readable inside the camera?
« on: January 17, 2018, 06:06:48 AM »
Many times I terribly need to read the ML user guide from the camera.

I know that Nightly builds do not come with user guide (I run a latest).

The good outdated guide would be a good reference anyway for me, especially for experimenting with functions I'm new to.

How can I do it ?

In the meantime you may want to store User Guide as HTML to your smartphone.

Thanks for the tip @Walter Schulz!  (Is it there an html version of the guide available?)

-Unfortunately I do not read german ::)

Furthermore I've found this
The helpfiles from old version. Unrar and just copy to SD card.

I have copied the files from Doc folder of an old ML2.3 to the Doc folder of my NB.
They are not seen by ML.
 I've tried to open the files from the "File manager" but it doesn't work.

File extension is .bmh.. I don't know to what Sf it is associated with. 

Any thougth?

They are plain BMPs (renamed because they showed up in some app that transfers photos).

Press INFO in ML menu; they are recognized here. However, if some menu entry was renamed since back then (even by changing a character), its help page will no longer be found.
