Where does one find the EPUB version of the Sigil User Guide?

The Sigil User Guide states in the About Sigil section:

Quote:
This User Guide was written with Sigil. You can download the EPUB version of this guide from the Sigil website and view it in Sigil to see an example EPUB ebook.
But no mention is made of where to find it. Is it somewhere obvious that I just keep overlooking?

Thanks.

It isn't available yet. An initial version was made available on an old thread but so much has changed since then that its no longer valid. The new version is being worked on and will be available for download as EPUB when done. The HTML version is still just a draft.

Ah. Thanks!

Should the "About Sigil" page be temporarily altered to say "coming soon" -- or "coming eventually" as the case may be? ;-)

Or is it rare that you get a confused newbie?

It was put onto the Downloads page of the website a few days ago.

Once its updated for the next version I'll make the link a little more noticeable in the guide itself.

Well done!

I put the epub version on a tablet and was able to have the guide handy as I tried out the new features in real time.

Regards - john

P.S. I removed the background-color css statement from div.tip. I have my tablet set to either green or white on black and it made it hard to read the tips.

Thanks. The next version should be a bit easier since there will be less updates (unless we keep adding features ). Hope to have the Tutorials done as that's the only thing missing from the guide at this point.

That background colour doesn't shown on my device though it does on the HTML website, so I'll probably remove it. It was mainly an experiment and for the most part the tips seem to look better now.

I just gave the Beta users guide a brief look.

It appears a great new feature got overlooked
