I'd like to RTFM but...

where is it? there doesn’t appear to be one, went to the usual place…help… but it’s not there, why do they do this? :frowning:


Drama queen…

Thanks jaslan :slight_smile:

nothing better to do but call peeps name then mate…so sad!!LOL

If you remember it wasn’t there for 9 either. A decision has been made to have the manual online. Presumably so that it was easily updated with the plethora of new functionality.

They could have added the pdf’s to the download manager imho

That would make a lot of sense.

Yeah but then we’d have something nice…

Not sure that’s allowed.

I’d take a PDF over all the sample content.

You can download the pdf from the URL listed by jaslan. Also, the F1 key takes you to the help website, albeit two levels above the direct link, so you have to select Product (Pro, Artist, Elements,…) and Version to get to the help files.

We had the same issue in Sonar, but there was a way to map the F2 key to the location of the PDF once you downloaded it. I tried searching the registry for it, but it doesn’t seem to be controlled by a registry key. Also, the F1 key isn’t map-able either. So I’m out of the few tricks I know.

Also, I really like peakae’s suggestion. That should certainly be easy enough to implement. Peakae, are you going to list that as a Feature Request, or would you like me to take care of that?

Just remembered there was a way to do this from user dasoft listed here https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=250&t=108072&start=50#top

I’ll recap (for Windows, sorry don’t know for Mac, although I would assume it is very similar):

  1. make a back-up of C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Cubase 10\Help\help-urls.xml
  2. Open the help-urls.xml file with an XML editor. I used the Microsoft one downloadable here XML Notepad
    Expand the Entry tabs for your language. It should look like this for English

  1. Edit the Title Text if you want. Edit the URL text to file:/// followed by the full location of your PDF (no space). I created a Documentation folder in the Cubase 10 folder and put it there, but you can put it anywhere as long as you put in the right location. Important point: spaces must be replaced with percent code, i.e., %20 for each space.

Example: file:///C:\Program%20Files\Steinberg\Cubase%2010\Documentation\Cubase_Pro_Artist_10_Operation_Manual_en.pdf

Mine looks like this

You can click on the image above to get the full sized version which is easier to read.

  1. Save the file.

Now open Cubase and press F1 and the file will open in your browser. The nice part about this is that when an updated version comes out, you can drop it in the same location and it still works (as long as the file name is the same, otherwise a quick edit will fix that).

Hope this helps.

Feel free to do it, I’m swamped, and might not get to it anytime soon.

It seems to me that almost every post I’ve seen from you is this kind of nonsense. Why not just keep scrolling if you have nothing useful or helpful to say? :unamused:

I posted a more general feature request that included peakae’s suggestion
