The primary form of official documentation for Tinderbox is the Tinderbox Manual (the app's macOS HTML Help). This also now includes the Release Notes (pre-v6 these were a separate TBX file). The Manual is accessed from the Help menu.
Eastgate offers user-to-user help via the Tinderbox forum (https://forum.eastgate.com). This resource, 'aTbRef' also available online at https://www.acrobatfaq.com/atbref8/index.html, although it should be noted it is not an official Eastgate resource.
Other Eastgate resources:
- Tinderbox website (https://www.eastgate.com/Tinderbox/)
- Tinderbox user-to-user forum (https://forum.eastgate.com/). NOTE: this is not Tinderbox's official tech support (see below), which should be a first port of call for urgent technical issues.
- Tinderbox's official tech support (firstname.lastname@example.org). This is generally a faster way of accessing technical helps then using the forum.
