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Obviously, that Word document is now out of date, but that is of no consequence, as my MinimServer configuration seldom changes.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.

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.

It's a pity that there are no screenshots that show how it looks like in Kazoo, for example, or other controls.
