Archived Topics



What's covered?

Over time frequently accessed topics that covered various features become overtaken by changes and they are become less relevant. However, there will always be some users who continue to use the feature. To remove clutter from the main areas of the site I have generated PDFs of those topics and made them available here.

If you can't find what you were looking for or want to view older versions of my site, try where they store copies of the site going way back.

The PDFs



AIR Help

These topics relate to Adobe AIR Help, a help file generated by Adobe RoboHelp classic versions. They do not cover AIR technology as used by developers.

The topics link to other PDFs that are not available here. Please let me know if you need any of them.
