Can anyone point me in the direction of some XWE tutorials? I kinda need some help; I'm used to using wintex, but it's obvious that XWE has far more potential.

I haven't seen any tutorials, but its help function can help, and its menus are relatively transparent. I've learned to use it mainly by using it. You can always ask around if something seems to escape you or doesn't seem to be working.

There's a built in help file, in which I tried to describe the most common WAD editing functions. Press F1 -> Contents -> Documentation -> Basic WAD editing operations.

It's cool but outdated. Ie. for importing flats, they it's described (the old way) is SO many steps. From TFM:

"Double-click the FLOOR button from the Filter Toolbar. You can select multiple entries. This will
- Create FF_START and FF_END lumps (if needed).
- Import all the selected images and save them as Doom flats."

Simple :-)

Tell me...

How does this help when the only thing that comes up when I click on this link is an inactive graphic pic?

On that site the anchor links don't seem to be working, but you can just scroll down.

I am just now using XWE for the first time and on Windows Vista the help file is not readable. I was given a link to a plugin which I downloaded and it didn't help at all. Does anyone know if the help file can be downloaded maybe as a PDF somewhere else, like the Doombuilder manual is?

Here you go. The help file doesn't cover every menu option though if there's sufficient demand I'll consider adding new content to the PDF file.
