I started by creating a keyboard shortcuts tips with content from the How Do I…
So what’s the difference between ‘How Do I…?’ and "Tips and Tricks’ ? I think that both cover the same matters.
At the beginning the ‘How Do I…?’ page was called ‘Tips’
wiki.synfig.org/wiki/index.php?t … edirect=no
I think newcomers come to Synfig and goes to the tutorial section to learn, there they get all topics clearly listed with nicely formatted small tips.
I think the How Do I… section is a bit overwhelming for a newcomer. It is a long list, I can imagine newcomers see it and think too much information, do I really need to read this?
Also for a newcomer tutorials is a natural starting point, the How Do I… is a a bit harder to find.
Also I think the help pages looks more professional and easier to follow with clearly divided topics.
In short, I think this will help usability of the documentation.
Also, not all How Do I… would make a good short tip/ mini tutorial. I think the section still is needed for posting How do I questions. Over time, if needed the question can be evolved into a short tutorial.
Also small walktroughs on how to do things is in reality tutorials but they may not fit in the current basic/intermediate/advanced categories which more have the character of lessons on how to use Synfig.
OK, seems reasonable. The How do I section was like a all purpose box thing.
Yes, and it still will be. Its good to have a pastebin for odds and ends that doesn’t yet fit into the wiki structure.
