Is there any offline user manual (pdf) for ignition 8.1 available for download? I have a system which can not connect to internet. It would be useful if an offline version for download is available.
IIRC, it tries docs.inductiveautomation.com first, as it will always have the latest updates there, then go to a local copy if fails to connect.
There’s no offline copy of the user manual anymore; there was one bundled with 7.9 and prior installations by default, but by 8.0 the overall size of the manual made any offline copy prohibitive. Plus, it’s inevitably out of date as soon as an export is built.
I understand the reason for forcing users to an online version of the manual, but I’d really prefer the offline option. Can you reconsider. Most of my Ignition servers are not connected to the internet to protect them. In most cases, I can use a 2nd computer to get to the online manual, but two of my systems are in areas with no internet connection and very poor cell service. On one site, everytime I want to consult the manual, I have to drive 15 minutes away to get to decent cell service. The offline manual in 7.9 and below was very useful at these sites.
You can download the periodically updated snapshot we provide of the user manual; scroll down to the bottom of the sidebar on the manual:
Thanks. That solves the problem. I guess I should have noticed it since it was in a pretty obvious place.
So the docs website is not accessible today because of a site certificate error. I was looking for the offline docs but the only link I can find for them is the link you have shown which is on the docs website. Is there another link for these docs? I have searched the support site but I cannot find one.
The manual is back up now. For posterity, the current (wildly out of date) offline manual download is here:
