    "Not that easy to get to know at first"

    November 4, 2009  |   By bbnewbie


    Once I got it to work,it was fine, although not as intuitive as mac programs usually are.I had to seek help from more knowledgeable persons as the help supplied wasn't helpful at all.


    No help under the help menu. Defaulted to Mac Classic which isn't on my computer! Being a total novice I didn't know what it was supposed to do or how it was supposed to work, so I had big problems getting started.


    I would like this product to come with either an online manual, or better still, a pdf manual that can be printed out. The help supplied assumed prior knowledge of the program or at least prior knowledge of FTP clients.As a complete novice, it was like stumbling around in the dark until I found someone who knew what to do to get started. After that it was a doddle. So better help would be my only wish - perhaps one of the members of the Classic Community could put something together and they could assume that the person they are writing for knows nothing about FTP clients.
