Hi Xiang-Jun,
Just downloaded and did a quick test of DSSR today after receiving the notice about it from the "3DNA Forum Team".
Results look great!  Many thanks for creating this and making it available.
Cheers,  Cathy

Hi Cathy,

Thanks for your kinds words! I've just noticed and fixed a glitch of the link for downloading the DSSR User Manual. Hopefully, you (and other users) should now be able to download the PDF file without any problem.

Best regards, and do not be shy in reporting back any bugs you may find!

Hi Xiangjun,
I'm having a trouble printing the DSSR manual.
When I print it from Firefox/PDF view the formatting is corrupted.
When I try to print from Mac/Preview and it is asks for a password.
Can you share the password info with your forum registrants?
Thanks, Cathy

Hi Cathy,

Sorry to hear the troubles you experienced in printing the DSSR Manual. I've added the password for printing at the Download page. I am not aware of the 'corrupted formatting' issue when the Manual is printed from Firefox/PDF view. Maybe it is due to password protection or something.

Please try to download the manual again and put it to your local directory, and then open it in a PDF reader to see if printing works. Please let me know if you have further problems.

Best regards,

Xiang-Jun

Thank you! -- with the password on the downloads page, printing the manual now works fine.

For your amusement I attach an image of the illegible table of contents from my prior failed attempt (via firefox/pdf viewer).

It is really amusing -- I can *never* imagine that DSSR could be associated with such an image! Thanks for sharing.

Just for the record: as noted in footnote #1, the manual was written in Word for Mac 2011 and then saved as PDF. To same space, the distributed PDF was optimized using Adobe Acrobat Pro. Unfortunately, virtually all the carefully curated hyperlinks are no longer active in the Mac-Word-generated PDF manual. I've tried quite a few options without finding a satisfactory solution.

Best regards,

Xiang-Jun
