Please review and provide feedback, comments, additions as needed. I have updated the guide up to the "conversation editor" section (completed overview and area editor so far).

Starting to go through it now - looks very crispy, especially all the screenshots with the numbered markers :) .

I was reading through the guide, looks pretty good. One thing I wondered about under Encounter design. I did not see mention of the Load Map option, for using a pre-existing map. Maybe that's becoming an archaic way of doing things. Instead, it seems to mention using the property grid and creating the encounter map right in the toolset.

I haven't made it to the encounter section yet. That is left over documentation from the old editor used for the android ib1 modules. I only made it to the conversation editor section so far in the draft document. The rest still needs to be updated to the way IB2 toolset now works.

Awesome! Wish I had more time at hand to help right now, but soon I will, no doubt about it.

"Soon" (see post above) has been drawn very long by me, sorry for that :oops: .

I think I will try to integrate the various separated tutorial posts I made into the manual (and update it for current IB Beta).

I fear I am not so good at making screenshots with numbers added on top to point out various sections on screen, so I might very well use the existing, partially outdated images and then comment on changes (like eg the new height system in the area editor).
