So I'm about done downloading the pdf's. I've not seen a master PDF that links to all the individual pages. What :confused: are you using?

Worse case I'll code a simple web interface.:rolleyes:

I just rename the pdf's to something meaningful and stick them into a couple of main directories. Windows explorer from there.

Yup. My subscription ends tomorrow afternoon. I'm downloading like crazy. Then I need to wrap it up with a front end.

my guess is that M stands for Manual. :D
I'm guessing that S stands for Service.

Here is the process I followed. Prior to signing up, I cut and pasted each of the various sections and subsections of the Factory Service Manual into a word document. Then I created individual files and sub-files with those headings. Then I signed up and as I downloaded the individual files I directed them to the files with the correct heading already created. It was a pain in the a$$ but certainly made the end result more manageable.

Example:
Service Manual
1) GENERAL INFORMATION SECTION
A) Foreword (399.35 kb)
B) How to Use This Manual (526.92 kb)
C) SPECIFICATIONS- Forester (438.91 kb)
D) Precaution (402.05 kb)
E) Note (553.94 kb)

Etc., etc., etc.

Yohy, Great solution and a similar result as the html index I planned. Also on the website are two other methods of access that would be cool to have. The first is graphical and displays the cars and senses your mouse position and brings up the pertinant referances. The second is an Index system that drills down to all the referances for example, Brakes would list Chassis, Systems, Lighting, ABS... pretty cool.

I wonder if I had payed for a complete CD if those tools would have come on the disk.
