You got exactly what was promised. In v4x, the manual supplied (in printed
version and from download on-line) was a single book. It was entitled
"Reference Manual". The on-line program "Help" in v4x was not as
extensive as it is in v5x. The manual shipped with v5x is essentially the
same as is available in the on-line Help of the program and is the same as
was made available for download from the Wholly Genes web site. I do not
expect to see any further printed manual from Wholly Genes.
Hope this helps -
