This page was added to show how the transfer skinning weights tool can be used to fix deformations when adding clothing to preexisting characters.
No other changes were made to the manual

An update to the PDF file. The video and html file from earlier posts have not changed.

At this point it's getting close to completion. Need to write a simple introduction. Maybe add some more images and check that the links work. Maybe some links to animated gif files for some images.

Thanks, I'll add your notes to the manual.
That :: button was confusing because it does 2 different things from a users perspective.
Click once and it opens the panel. Maybe it also saves it but as a user you can't see that.
Click it while the panel is open will set/save the position and size etc. of the panel. Again no user feedback, so you just have to know it's saving the panel.
On top of that it also saves the 1D, 2D, 1+2 appearance so LMB does not necessarily open a 2D look and RMB may not open as 1+2 aspect for the panel.

I realize it is not very intuitive
The saving part was added at a latter date pre request
LMB & RMB have their own panel frames

Updated the Materials section and added images for the NURBS section. Added a note for using materials with NURBS patches. The gif images idea has been abandoned in favor of a simple sequence of images in the pdf file.

page 74 say joint snapping is broken, it's been fixed since that note was written.

page 102
View – the light has a camera inside of it. This button will set the active 3D window to a camera view
using this camera. Click again to switch back to the previous view.

Do not press this button except in a floating panel. This button does not work from the stack
view. Do not switch to another 3D views while active or the button will change both 3d
windows the next time it is used. So press View, do what you need to do and then disable it.
You might want to revisit the Projector & Spot light's View button
It works from the Stack and changes the Main View to the light's Camera view
It does not work from the Stack with active floating 3D windows

Using the View button from the light's floating panel changes the Main View and any active 3D Window

will update pg 102, 149 and 199
pg 207 Working on the NURBS. I want those changes listed plus change the PE widget to just switch to NURBS control point mesh instead of stopping it.
pg 219 the code needs to be rewritten to fix the bug

Fix for the curve smoothing bug when the last control point is selected for smoothing. Bug mentioned on page 219 of the UU Manual.
