Thank you for highlighting the online manuals Callie. This fulfills a wishlist request I originated several years ago.

Eddie, the manuals have been online for quite some time. Callie just is getting around to announcing it.

I believe online manuals will benefit the sale of PG Music software programs as having them available allows a prospective customer to look through a manual to determine if the programs will meet their needs. Couple online manuals with a 30 day, no questions asked, money back guarantee makes for happy new customers.

As far as I can determine the online and those sent with the product are the same. Why waste effort creating and maintaining special online manuals?

Having online manuals allows prospective customers the ability to download and review a manual to help determine if the product meets the customer needs.

It also is useful to forum users that wants to answer forum questions for products the user doesn't have. Most forum members have the Windows version of Band-in-a-Box. The forum members that like to answer questions can use the online Mac Band-in-a-Box manual to assist Mac users.
