It is my understanding that there is no manual or documentation for thinkScript....
Is that right ?

There's an official online reference at https://tlc.thinkorswim.com/center/reference/thinkScript which is all I've made use of. It seems it has been maintained a bit, and finding things on there has gotten a little easier in the past year or so. But overall the amount of info and examples are still sparse.

This hasn't been updated in a while but I've found it very helpful over the years.

Hey guys, thanks so much. It's pretty hard to believe that with all of their resources, TD Ameritrade can't afford to document their platform.

This might be helpful : https://usethinkscript.com/
And I understand there's an unofficial tos beginners guide on reddit.
