In Response To: Re: Bitner Reviews Mino (Godot)

: Yours is a much better version than the one on Macintosh Garden. No footer
: text and sensible page breaks.

: I am curious what software did you use to convert this?

: Thanks for uploading this.

: Cheers

Glad you like it!

I actually used several programs to port it.

There was the original manual, which I had open constantly to ensure an accurate layout for the port.

I used ResEdit to extract all of the images. But not the text, which I copied straight out of the manual (ResEdit doesn't display extended characters correctly).

Then I threw all of this into a TextEdit (Mac OS X) document to format everything. The original manual's pages were longer, so I had to do a little bit of reformatting to get the page breaks to line up properly (among other things). Finally, TextEdit has a nifty little feature for creating PDFs, so that was the easy part.

By the way, here's a slightly better version (minor tweaks and fixes):
