I'm one of those people who loves to follow the directions. When I buy something new, I read the instructions. Yes, even the instructions to the simplest things like my contact solution.
I realize that this is weird and understand other people's need to dive right into something without hours of tedious reading. That's why for our software like Manga Studio, I keep a list of helpful tutorial pages for reference. I know that no one wants me to say "Well, if you go to page 323 in the manual..."
Happy learning everyone!
