Documentation

The following PDFs contain the most important documentation available within Lurch. These documents were generated by Lurch for posting on the web. You can access them from within the software through the Help menu. You can also find Introductory Videos on this website.

Note that the hyperlinks do not work in the PDFs, but do work in Lurch. In particular, links to the interactive tutorial only make sense from within the software itself. To take the tutorial, first get a copy of Lurch from our Downloads page, then find the tutorial on the Help menu.
