Any _real_ documentation for SC ?

Hi !

Well, I'm giving a go at SC. The soft seems to have a good reputation. Also, I find the documentation on the website is a real mess and a labyrinth to nagivate through.

Is there a real documentation somewhere, well written, with examples, list of available functions per type, list of spreadsheet manipulations, screenshots, etc ?

Thanks !

I'm surprised to hear your opinion. Can you give an example of another trading software package which has better documentation than SC? The online documentation is thorough, generally well written, and answers 99% of the questions I have had about the platform. In short, it is the best documentation I have ever had the pleasure of using. I may sound overboard but documentation is such a laborious boring task that it speaks volumes about the team at SC that they actually update and maintain the documentation. Just go look at another help site like Ninja or Multicharts (if you want to call it "help") and just see how SC shines in this category. The search feature in the upper right is very good, also the site is well indexed on google so sometimes I will search google for 'sierra chart xyz' and it often turns up the right answer.

1) Did you not find this for spreadsheets?:

Sierra Chart - Documentation Table of Contents

2) What are "list of available functions per type"? Are you talking about custom programming with ACSIL? If so:

Sierra Chart - Advanced Custom Study Interface and Language

3) Screenshots of what?

Congrats on taking the SC plunge; it's well worth it and I hope you find it suits your needs!

I was not saying there is no documentation, but I find it hard to find what I need help with.
Maybe a well designed PDF exists somewhere ?

For example, have a look at this old MC 'printer friendly' pdf : Documentation

Or even this multicharts documentation from alpari:http://static.alpari.co.uk/docs/alpari_uk_userguide_metatrader4.pdf

I find it easier to search, navigate, read, on these pdf than on the SC documentation website. Maybe that's just a matter of me, or also the pages on the SC website don't have any border actually ?

walk thru sc document is like walk thru a maze one wrong turn and you end up with thing that unrelates to what you were looking for. try google until you are more familiar with SC way of doing thing,
exmp: want to know about color, google 'color site:www. sierrachart. com'

So what specifically do you need help with? I can't really tell from what you said in your first post.

Frankly, I find SC documentation quite difficult to follow too..

And their support forum is one horrible mess. I can't believe up till now, they still haven't bothered to categorise the forum in a couple of broad themes..

No wonder similar questions keep popping up at times..
