|Do you supply a printed manual with the software?
Yes. The software comes with a quick guide entitled:
Getting the most out of the Compleat Botanica.
addition to this printed quick guide, there are approximately 600 cross-referenced HTML documents
that provide a tour of the software, describe how to manage your data,
provide tips for getting more out of the software, and provide
links to plant related Web sites.
If you prefer to read the HTML documents from paper rather than on-line, you can
obtain PDF documents here that are ready for printing.
