    I started a new Yahoo group (see subject) and would appreciate contributions from anyone who has played with the software and become familiar with it. Looking for tutorials on how to do specific things, like Keels, Fins, decks, cabins, etc. As the software is developing/evolving I would expect the tutorials to evolve with it as new features are added. This is to be an archive of how to's so people can refer to what others have done to short cut the learning process. No, I don't expect the people who use this software to go out and build a 100 ft boat with the output, but it can help them flesh out what they want so they can go to an NA sounding reasonably knowledgable in what they want.

    Nice!

    Tutorials and how-tos in general are always very much appreciated in this forum as well :)

    Hi Steve,
    What are the benefits of setting up a forum at Yahoo rather than just continuing with discussions etc here?

    Cheers,
    Leo.

    Storage! There is no files section here to store the screen shots and instructions:( How often do you go back 4 or 5 pages to look at the posts of the past? If you were new here, where would you look for information on how to do something in a certain software? With the Yahoo group, you can browse the files section and the photos section to see if there is a tutorial that covers what you want to do.

    I understand. I have always been wary of yahoo because of the spam I used to get from their address and the annoying number of ads on their pages.

    Happy New Year!
