We just released a new User Guide and a new QuickStart Guide for DAZ Studio.

They are both available in .pdf format here:

Thank you for these.  I have already learned some things I did not know and I have only gotten to the end of Chapter 2.

This will help those just starting out(and maybe a few advanced users).

Is there a more detailed Reference guide in the works(other than the online center)?

And given the amount of time all this took ... as just installing everything and it runs, isn’t exactly what’s happening for everybody. As this is the first time I’ve installed with DIM I rather wonder if having the 2 CM [one for DIM and one for the 2 programs, release and beta] is what’s causing the issue to get content to show. My 2 Cents.

I didn’t even know I had a Barefoot Dancer until yesterday morning and was going to see what I could find out about it tonight.  Voila!  There she is in our new guide.  Many, many thanks to anyone and everyone who put this together.  We have needed it for a long time.grin

  It is a nice quick guide to the basics that should be very helpful to new users, good job.  I learned a few new things reading through it that I did not know about yet and will doubtless refer back to it in the future.

  Is there any chance that a complete guide covering every feature of DS, rather than just the more commonly used features described in this document, could be added as well?  This basic guide would be an excellent starting point for such a document.

I applaud DAZ for completing and releasing a DAZ Studio Users Manual. Thank you!

Is there any chance of there being completed and released a manual for the Content Creation Tools? It is extremely frustrating not being able to find detailed information about the less obvious options in these tools. When I ask questions I am usually directed to the Documentation Center, which is woefully incomplete in this area.

Thank you.

We have also asked for advanced documentation on the tools. If you have some knowledge of how the tools work you can get by, but if your someone who hasn’t worked with the tools in the past then your completely lost

So, the User Guide has been out for about a month now.  The feedback so far has been good.  I can’t promise anything, but I do have plans (nothing concrete, so don’t get too excited) for documenting some of the more advanced features in Studio.

Feel free to chime in with specific functions that you’d like to see covered first.
