Questioning about manuals ?

Where is the place that I can propose the editing for manuals ?

For instance, right now, when revising COOR, COOR{2}, COOR{3} GDL commands, there was no mentioning that the these take effect after defining a specific body.

And that is why it should be included in the manual

9. Some neat tricks related to GDL creation would be nice.

For example, the difficulty of using cutpolyA (& variants) is that there is no direct way to see them in the GDL 3D preview, but you can write this for the manual (as an example😞
Tips & tricks:
Working with CutpolyA (and variants) can be a little difficult to use since that there is no direct way to see them, especially when they don't give you the result that you wish.

But modifying the code to be prism_ compliant then by commenting the first line as seen in following example can make your work process a lot more easier ...

!cutpolyA 4, 3, 1,
prism_ 4, 1,
0.5, 0.5, 7,
0.75, 0.5, 7,
0.75, 0.75, 7,
0.5, 0.75, 7

Moonlight,
You do not need to address your posts to me, it is enough to post them in this thread. I have forwarded it to GRAPHISOFT,

This note should have been included in the GDL manuals

By the way CWALL_ command doesn't even have a tiny whiny lousy example, and in the forums there is only 4 entries, being 1 as moderately related.

NON GDL Side Note

Graphisoft should start to ship it's API manuals as PDFs (2 to be accurate):
1. One for reference.
2. Second for first steps using API

The API reference documentation is fine the way it is:
- It comes with linkage to VS and Xcode (for interactive use)
- It's far quicker to open a small document for the info you're interested in (a PDF with the API reference would be enormous)

Is there some specific advantage you're seeking from a PDF?
