Re: [PATCH] new Eeschema manual, from chapter 1 to chapter 5 plus two new .svg icons


thanks for the hints. This openoffice table of contents thing really
drives me crazy. I am not very good at it and i did try very hard to
understand how to generate proper page numbering when the doc is split
over different files but i did not get it.

I will try try again and report back.

yeah, English docs are not so good but all in all kicad has (thank to
jean-pierre) already an enormous amount of pages of documentation. I
guess that if we keep working on it, in 3~6 months or so it can be
quite good. I think that what is more needed is content, english
proofreading, continuos restyling and doc reorganization but i think
documentation looks already all right.

I'll keep working on it.

cheers guys
