Very Early, Still-A-Work-In-Progress Draft of the GCA5 User’s Reference Guide

I’ve got a few things into the GCA5 User’s Reference Guide at this point, so I thought I’d share a work-in-progress link, just in case anyone cares.

This is first draft territory; most of the links that will be there are not there yet, and the only editing so far is my own review as I write each piece, so there are likely lots of typos and whatnot.

If you want to take a look, please only comment on what kinds of content you’d like to see, depth of coverage, and so on. Anything at the copy-edit level will be wasted at this point.

Link to the file on my OneDrive is here: GCA5 User Reference Guide (link updated to new doc January 12, 2022)

Plugin Reference Guide (in progress, slowly)

I’m working on the user reference guide for GCA5 right now, but I occasionally spend time on more technical docs as well.

If you are writing a plugin, or want to write one, here are some docs I’m slowly working on that may help you (along with looking at the code for existing sheets to see how I do something in particular.)

I’m afraid I haven’t actually updated it in a while, but it may already have some useful info within.

Data File Features

I haven’t done a preview in a while, so for something a bit different, I thought I’d post some of the additions to what data files can support. This also provides a peek into what kinds of new features traits support, as well, since one follows on the other.

Since I made a pretty document about it recently, I figure I’ll just link to that, and let you check it out if you’d like.

Here it is:
