The GFUI (app.glowforge.com) has a sidebar of links to GF documents, information, etc. This is the one I’m referring to:
Presumably this is maintained by GF and we would expect is current. Yet if I click on the “read the manual” link I get this page to download the manual with this warning:
The manual that is linked from the regularly updated sidebar on the link online is not to be trusted but the one I’m sent a link to in my offer email 6 weeks before I get the unit is? A year from now, the one I should use is still the one I link to in Nov 2017 and not the one that’s online? That seems counter-intuitive.
I would suggest that the manual linked to from the app page be the latest and most current one. You could leave each one up as history and by model (e.g. Basic Manual - most current, Pro Manual - most current, Basic Manual Nov 17, Pro Manual Jan 18, etc) so if people want to see the original one that matches their model and when they got their machine they can find it and if they want the current one which presumably is updated with new content from GF as you learn about issues, etc. with the machines that will be available too.
