Any chance to make manuals for all your extensions in PDF format, like other extensions that we install via the Extension Manager?
For me is difficult to understand manual without all the steps illustrated.
jQuery Masonry Extension I learned very fast with manual, and now I'm stuck on Masonry Filter. :/

instead of complaint about the file format, why you dont tell me which part is unclear for you from the following simple steps?

(from the info file)

How to use?

First things first: please read in full the masonry's documentation so as you can know how it works, also please take a look at the available samples.

1. Design your page according to the masonry scheme.
2. As you added 'class="item"' ('item' or the class/selector name you want), add the 'filter name' you want, i.e. 'music' and as many as you need for each element; so, you will have something like that: 'class="item media image"' and in other element can be 'class="item media music"' or 'class="item media video"' or 'class="item media image color"', etc... (without the single quotes.)
3. Add the masonry object and specify your desired .selector and #container.
4. Add the [rz] Masonry Filter extension and set-up the same #container and .selector as in the masonry wb's object, this way both extensions will be "shake their hands".
5. Add texts, shapes or any other object that accepts events, they will act as "filter buttons".
6. For each "filter button" -the object that accepts events-, open its properties dialog.
7. Go to the Events tab.
8. Click on "add..." button.
9. In the Add event dialog, select:
Event -> onclick
Action -> Javascript Function
Javascript -> MyMasonryFilter('filterstring')
10. Click on the OK button (twice) until the object's dialog is closed.
11. Remember to go to the step #6 until all of your links/events are defined.

Just replace MyMasonryFilter by the actual object (extension) id; the same for the quoted filterstring, enter the actual filter criterium such as 'video', 'image', etc. The function call may be: filter('image');
If you don't specify any filter, all of the objects will be shown. The function may be: filter();

With total respect... I dont actually think this was a complaint? I read it as a polite questions because there was a '?' and not a '!'

Well I didnt read it that way :wink:
Making mistakes....and still learning as I go along.. and very grateful to those who know far more than me... :)

If you can add illustrations in txt format I will not complaint on format.
So this is not about format, this is about manuals quality.
Yours plagins are nice but manuals not.

I am not sure why wont work. May be any step. If I had illustations (like other extension have) or demo project it would be much easier for me and for you.

even the sample file does not work?
(i think a sample file may help even better than a screenshot)
have you followed the steps as described?
have you misspelled a class name, an object id or something like that?

I guess that I stuck here: Javascript -> MyMasonryFilter('filterstring')

This morning I tried Quicksand Extension. Very quickly I passed manual and all worked.
However this plugin does not work well by itself. Animation only works from ALL to CLASS and from CLASS to ALL.
Animation from CLASS to CLASS do not work. You can check here what I did with Quicksand: http://remix.com.hr/
So, your plugin is much better but Quicksand PDF manual is better to me.
This is feedback for you and I wish you'll think about it.
I have no programming knowledge and I use the WB because they say "Easy and Fun". It is not easy and fun if I can not understand manual. : /
