Why no PDF help file?

I am one of those anal guys that just has to have a printed owners manual so that while I am watching the evening news I can further bore myself by reading a software owners manual.

So you can image my horror when I found out that CC Firestarter does not have an owners manual in PDF format that I can print out. :o:o

Does CC have any plans on recifying this serious oversite?? :D:D

If it were an easy program to use like Lock Box (which is the other CC software without a PDF manual, shame on you guys!) I would not be concerned, but as a Certified Newbie, I am lost without my printed manual! ;)

Not exactly free--$69

And it, and others, only convert one page at a time. As Scott would say, "Yuck"

Anybody else got any ideas?

Just search Google for CHM to PDF. There are tons of options to choose from.

This is the only one that works, $29 but as a trial the only thing it does is put a very small watermark at the top of the document. It Converts the whole help file to a pdf.
