Too much screen time has destroyed my concentration so I’ve been getting paper manuals for my hardware printed locally and that has been a life saver, for me at least. However, I was quoted €61 to print the larger manual in colour and €29.40 (lol) in greyscale. Looking through the manual and fucking brilliant UI shots, I noticed that all graphics feature the dark UI, which of course, goes a long way to somewhat explain the extortionate costs being quoted to me.
I imagine that if a “light” UI made up the bulk of the graphics rather than the uber dark UI, the print costs would be less, thus the print use would be less, thus a “greener” manual and hopefully less rip off quotes being levied to me as being realistic.
Yet, even if the cost price were lower, ink use would still be high factoring in the dark UI, so my question is:
Are there any official plans to in house edit the present manual to factor for this?
And… does anyone else see any ecological sense to this?
Thanks for the suggestion Tall_TeQ… Maybe I’ll raise the question directly to the Renoise crew. I just wanted to reduce pollution (and cost) by wondering if anyone else would see the merit in a manual edited to replace dark UI with light UI to reduce both printing costs and amount of ink consumed, but heh, I guess that’s a little too much for some. I’ve requested the thread closed but do appreciate at least an attempt at a humane answer dude, so you have my thanks for that
… but that’s not really the ask. Am only interested in topic set, that is, an edition of the manual that replaces dark UI screen shots with light UI screen shots, and that’s not too much to ask I hope, but that’s up to the good folks at Renoise to decide.
Anyhow. Talk about a destroyed mood. I’m done.
PS. thx for the good intent with second suggestion, just noticed it, see below
