The Service Manuals are now included in Search

The Service Manuals are also searchable using the Warfs search engine. This should help you find that hard to find info that\'s hidden in there.

Enjoy!!

Does the \"Soon these manuals will be in a searchable format!\" comment on the manuals page imply that they\'ll available as searchable pdfs or just searchable through the website? By searchable pdf I mean the original scanned pdf with an invisible text layer that you can search and copy and paste from.

If the answer is \'no\' then I have good news. I\'ve finally discovered how to convert them to searchable pdfs and I\'ll be sure to share them when I get around to converting them all.

For anyone who\'s tried this before and failed: The problem was that they were all signed with some useless digital signature and were therefore unmodifiable. The workaround was to print to pdf(!) and ocr the resulting identical pdf.

The original scans were in too poor of quality to convert them to offline search.
