    Default The tutorials are falling behind the times

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I was looking at a few of the tutorials and realized that they were written quite a few releases ago. Consequently the information is sometimes not valid for current releases. Sometimes an item referenced in the tutorial is no longer in the program or there are better ways to do things in newer releases.

    It might be good to specify what release the tutorial was written for so people will know that those are not specific to the recent release.

    I know it would be a lot of work to keep those up to date, and I am not volunteering to do it, but it might be worth updating every three releases or so.

Sometimes, there's a man, well, he's the man for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that's the Dude, in Los Angeles. - The Stranger, The Big Lebowski

    It has to be very tough to "be all things to all people" when CADTutor has seen questions from users running everything from AutoCAD 12 to 2011! LOL

    I think this thread further demonstrates the benefits of the addition of a Wiki to CADTutor - that way, the workload involved with updating such tutorials/references could be spread throughout the community.

    With Mathematics there is the possibility of perfect rigour, so why settle for less?
