TimyMCE: editor manual available?

Hi Folks!
Yes, there is plenty information on installing en configuring TinyMCE - even a wiki, but the editor ITSELF has no manual. Yes, there is a ‘?’ button in the menu bar but that doesn’t give much information.
The tricky thing is that customers ask for some kind of manual even though they are all used to programs like Word etc. This editor just behaves different, options are different and the client gets frustrated. I’ve been surfing the net but no avail… Do you guys have tips/ideas? Did you encounter similar requests from clients?

Thanks,

Paul

Why not say “nope, there is not any official user manual, but I would be happy to create one for you” and give them a price.

I’m sure they will say, “it’s OK we will press on without it”.

Client’s will often push you for everything possible for free. Stand firm, and be honest.

That is indeed a nice answer. It is a fact however that CMSes offered by ‘official payed CMSes’ do provide a manual.

In order to qualify for the same category we would need something like that for these editors… I think…

If you need a manual for the TinyMCE editor (which itself is not a
commercial product, regardless of what you put it in) it would
probably save time if you just wrote it yourself! I don’t mean this
as a dig at all, just an observation regarding a possible practical
solution.
