This 4 page summary was derived from Simon's online user guide, which is the equivalent of around 70 A4 pages of text and can be quite hard to navigate, as the hypertext format lacks any global search facility.

I find Google quite useful for this. Smile

Hi Simon,
I take your point, but Google searches always throw up a lot of irrelevant results. Searching a conventional non-hypertext document is much slicker. This is why I spent an hour or so copying all your online text and pasting it into a single Word document, before generating my own summary notes. Being able to rapidly search the entire user guide made a big difference during this process.

Obviously, that Word document is now out of date, but that is of no consequence, as my MinimServer configuration seldom changes. If I want to tweak any settings, my summary notes will probably provide all the guidance I require.

RE: best practice for classical music
What I meant was that you can use Google to search a specific site for keywords, in this case the site minimserver.com.

For example, to search for "composer" on the minimserver.com site (including the MinimServer forum), you can enter:

composer site:minimserver.com

If you want to exclude forum posts from your search, you can enter:

composer site:minimserver.com -site:forum.minimserver.com

I never knew you could do that with a Google search, so many thanks for that very useful advice.
