Description

Blender Documentation (latest manual build)

Welcome to the Blender User Documentation project. We are actively searching for contributors and documentation module owners.

The Blender Manual is written using reStructuredText (RST) and is built with Sphinx.

If you want to start contributing or want to have a look at the manual, here we have some instructions.

How to build & edit the docs locally

Before you start contributing it may be helpful to read the style guides which give instructions on how to write with RST and some goals of the manual.

Now that you are familiar with the process, you can get setup, edit, and contribute your changes by following these links:

  1. Install
  2. Build
  3. Edit
  4. Build again
  5. Patch or Commit
NOTE: We realize this may be intimidating if you're not familiar with Subversion or making patches, you may also submit the modified file as a Phabricator task, or mail the bf-docboard mailing list.

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) added a comment to T65804: Manual SVN file move error.

The folder contents on svn.blender.org is correct, procedural.rst is not supposed to be there. This looks like an issue in phabricator no reflecting the SVN repository state correctly.
