Actually not. What it is is pointed, and it is not selfish because I  
posted on behalf of someone other than myself. It is an attempt to get  
others to see the point of view of those who prefer printed manuals  
instead of treating their requests as though they don't really matter,  
which is how your reply to Jim came off to me, and how almost all of  
the previous replies by others on this matter have also come off. You  
accuse me of being rude when almost all of the replies regarding  
requests sent to this list for a printable manual have been approaching  
rude and have definitely been condescending. Two people have replied  
with links to printable resources. Everyone else has only spouted  
excuses as to why there aren't any. Those replies are not helpful. If a  
project as large and complicated as OpenOffice.org can have a printable  
manual (which it does:  
http://billsey-christian.net/tmp/ShotsOfOOoManual.JPG ; apparently done  
largely by one person), certainly scribus can also.
