Re: Video tutorials please

Alan Coomber

Can I put the other side please - I hate video tutorials.  They're so difficult to follow.  The written word can be looked at again, and again, until it makes sense.  And I can go back to it in six months when I've  forgotten what it said.  I've been using this lockdown to learn Xway and to learn a lot more about css etc.  Last week I'd never heard of flex-box - this week I'm an expert (well, nearly!) 

Keep up the good work - looking forward to the next update and hoping for tables.

As another dyslexic I’m going to second this. I’m a visual learner. I truly have tried reading the documents and tutorial but it’s been a frustrating trouble.
My own hunch is that a large portion of the people eattracted to original Freeway were visual learners. 
I understand that at this stage of Xway’s developments things are in flux but video tutorials don’t have to be “polished.” Simple screen casts walking through some functions and a basic web page design would be so helpful.

Trying to wrap my extremely dyslexic mind around Xway. If I can see how to do something rather than trying to figure out something by reading text (which is a bummer way to do things) it would be a great way to learn how to use this Freeway Pro “replacement”. 
I have a bad feeling that Xway is not going to be as intuitive, or as visually easy to understand as Freeway was for me. 
I know I need a modern replacement for my trusty Freeway Pro 7, but I don’t want to be tearing my quite long hair out by the roots while trying to figure this all out. Will you all please be making some tutorial videos, asap?
Thanks a million,
