A New Manual In AsciiDoc

Part 2

Cover page of the Merlin Project manual

This is the second part of my project report for the new Merlin Project manual. I will try to give a more or less brief update on the project every Friday.

The Project

Before we jump into AsciiDoc, here's a quick look at my project.

  • The Git repository has been set up
  • The lines are defined and some of them are listed here as well.
  • The prerequisites are known as far as they go.
  • A first outline has been created and will now be refined gradually.
  • As pictures I will first use only quick screenshots, and then recreate them as needed.
  • A weekday for writing is set.

The last point in particular was a real challenge for me, because somehow I have to find the time to write. If I just take every available minute, I'll probably never finish. I need a set block of time, and that's exactly what I've created. As of now, Wednesday is my manual writing day. Let's see how long that works ...

A New Manual In AsciiDoc

Part 1

Cover page of the Merlin Project manual

We are constantly optimizing Merlin Project for easier use. We already started some time ago with the start dialog and cleaning up the inspector.

With version 8, the dynamic help has now been introduced: Just click on the ? symbol and you will get an explanatory help text for every object you point to with the mouse (or with your finger on the iPad). You can even create your own help texts for your own fields.

Unfortunately our manual is a bit behind. But don't worry, there is rich and up-to-date documentation, like:

A complete manual does not exist at the moment. And that's exactly what I want to change now.

Color at Workplace

With my previous blog-article, I shared an insight into my digital tools of daily work.

Today, it's about the hardware that provides these digital tools.
In our everyday life, workstations with their software, their operating systems, are just technical helpers that should work perfectly.

Now a new computer has arrived, an M1 iMac from Apple. The new M1 generation has already raised enough attention technically, I don't have to worry about the performance and the technical features.

More important is the small, underestimated side effect, the color, in my case it is yellow. A sunshine at my workplace. It's just nice to look at this computer.
