Download Ignition User Manual

How can I download the user manual for reference while I’m offline?

So I take it there’s no local copy on the gateway anymore? It used to revert to the local copy if it couldn’t reach the manual online.

EDIT: I understand if not, as the download size has gotten a lot larger with Java tucked back into it.

Not in all of the 8.X line, for a few reasons:

  1. It was quite chunky
  2. It was quite out of date pretty immediately
  3. We kept finding people who were inadvertently hosting it on their public gateways and having it indexed by search engines

That explains why I kept finding links to the Ignition manual on google that weren’t on an Inductive Automation domain :joy:
