Request:

EPUB versions of the workbooks. This will help keep us up to date when the software is updated, for those of us that bought the workbooks.

Why it's important?

Let's say a few years down the road you guys have updated all the software and added a lot more features; the workbooks won't cover these changes, but a EPUB or PDF adaptation could be updated and it could be provided to registered accounts that have bought the workbooks already. I also would like the ability to have the content on my computer or phone, rather than having to lug around workbooks.

  • Shipping of the workbooks to people in different parts of the world can be limiting. An epub or .pdf version eliminates that barrier.
  • Easier to update the books as needed.
  • You save on printing & shipping costs.
  • Less stuff to carry around.
  • Environmentally friendly.
  • Quicker access.

I think in general you get to a point where you know the software very well and the books become less and less important. Once you understand the software and how it works all you really need to do is check what new features have been added to an update. 

Pretty sure in 10 years we will be on V2 at minimum so they would obviously not keep writing and supporting old versions of their software with e-books.

I go back for frame of reference when I need to, and I don't want to carry two workbooks around when I'm on the go. I already carry my tablet & GoPro around. I prefer a digital version of the workbooks. Understanding software is fine and all, but art is not my only hobby. It's good to have e-books in case I need to brush up.

Are we at the end of V1?

No one outside of Serif knows when V2 might be coming. It might be the next major release after 1.9, or we might see 1.10, 1.11, etc. for some number of years before we see 2.0.
