Yes, manuals of various programs are very useful. When I had installed more complex software, I had to read its manual. But I have not done this with e-Sword, because the program is very simple and its functions are self-explanatory. I have been using the program for a long time and have always been able to understand its simple functions.
Like you, I also know just how simple e-Sword is to use. In fact the term I've coined for e-Sword is "simplicity of use, and ease of access," which really didn't need a help file for it. Well, that was then, and for the most part is still now ... until you forget something ... as was the case with me.
The best example was when I responded to a post regarding of how to create Bookmarks in e-Sword. The one thing that I actually am totally conversant with. except when that was when everything about it just went right out of the window and gave a totally incorrect answer. And when the incorrect answer was pointed out to me, I felt like a total dofus. So I went to the User guide and looked it up, and there it was in all its glory of how to create and edit bookmarks in e-Sword. The person wanted to know how to edit bookmarks.
So, with that, the lesson I learnt was that irrespective of how well a person may know a program, that User Guide is still the very first port of call that one should go to even when responding to a query or to give an answer to fix a problem. By the way, that was exactly when I did with you.
You just never know when you may actually need to refer to it.
The best thing that Josh Bond and his cohorts in crime ever created and put up, and which Rick Meyers made to be the official help documentation for e-Sword. Just can't beat that.
