Please come all to AstroFest in London to ask us (Mabula & Vincent) questions and to see live demos of APP!
2023-01-19: APP 2.0.0-beta13 has been released !
!!! Big performance increase due to optimizations in integration !!!
and upgraded development platform to GraalVM 22.3 based on openJDK19
We are very close now to releasing APP 2.0.0 stable with a complete printable manual...
[Closed] User manual
is there somewhere a user manual of APP?
In order to promote APP within my astro club, I have to cross the language barrier. Indeed, many people in my club are not comfortable with English. Who said the French only speak French? 🤔
Currently, the bubble system does not allow you to copy what is written on it.
Also, if a manual existed as a pdf or html file, I could start a translation.
Do we have a users manual in here for APP??
Apart from the video's and topics/stickies here + the tooltips in the program, not yet. It's being worked on right now.
A time horisont?
Within a few months
Thank you for prompt answer! Looking forward.
hi-i have the newest version (1.074.1). I am trying to calibrate flats and darks. after i put them in, i scroll down to "create bad pixel map" and attempt to hit calibrate. however, there isn't a "calibrate" "button" that i can find. what are the next steps after loading the flats and darks?
thanks for any guidance.
Hi Heather, It's the top one of these buttons.
Thank you. However, nothing happens when I click on the link. Suggestions?
Thanks for your help!
What Vincent means is go to tab 2 in APP and scroll to the bottom. Then click the “create masters...” button and it will do what you are looking for.
update on the manual? Really struggling with relying upon the pop-up tools tips and especially where there are no tool tips e.g. in the RGB Combine Tool.
It would be REALLY HANDY to have text to refer to when learning the interface
Sorry, no update as of yet. When the next release is out I'll try to have a good conversation with Mabula about it.
I'll second this. A printable reference manual would be extremely useful. Videos are linear and not useful to find specific details and explanations. Even a quick, unpolished, ugly but comprehensible manual would work. Maybe you'll even get some volunteer editing!
Perhaps a User Manual should get a higher priority vs. adding new features? I can see where critical bug fixes may take the highest priority. But, outside of that, learning to use what exists now is more important to me than features that I may never understand without documentation. I'm sure I am not the only one who feels this way.
It is, have a look here; https://www.astropixelprocessor.com/community/postid/17356/
