Cheers

Neat!I'm noticing some formatting issues (justified paragraphs making for some crazy word spacing). What did you use to make the pdf?

Yeah, it happens in some paragraphs and I was too lazy to figure out how to change it. I used LibreOffice 5.

EDIT: I'm attaching a .docx version in case somebody wants to edit it. Needless to say: Do what you want with it. By the way, it would be nice if the forum upload allowed .odt files.

It only happens where you made line breaks instead of "real" paragraphs. You can see the difference in LibreOffice with this (https://help.libreoffice.org/Writer/Nonprinting_Characters).

BTW: We have some German translation projects being stuck running at Aktion 23 (http://aktion23.userboard.org/), if you wanna join? :roll:

I corrected the mis-alignment but it seems I can't attach files here. :aaa:

It seems that unintelligible and punny forum categories are mandatory for these types of forums. That's nice and all but I honestly couldn't find the translation projects.

Thanks for the formatting help, though.

You could always upload it somewhere else (e.g. https://mega.nz/ ) and post the link.

Traditional rather than mandatory. But yes, indeed.

I'm not even sure we have a forum for that already, but there is a namespace for ongoing translation projects in our Wiki (http://aktion23.lima-city.de/wniki/doku.php/start). :roll: Now that I think about it, it's a namespace that is only visible to authorized members. I'm sure I can get you in if you like. ;-)

No problem.

Yeah, actually wanted to do that. Uhm. Later. :p

Cool, you might just have recruited a new member. I specialize in funny memes too!

:eek: You surf without an ad blocker? Are you suicidal? :omg:
Sr(sl)y now, I haven't visited the forum without an ad blocker in ages because some of the ads were already too annoying, so I don't know how bad that might have become in the meantime. :ninja:
