Just received my 2018. It included another learning manual not a full user guide. The last one I have was for 2014. As I am semi retired don't use softplan daily or even weekly, which leads me to the reference book quite often as my 70 year old brain requires. My question is is there a user guide that is up to date (ei includes new features and improvement)?

Printed versions are printed less and less. If you're a Softplan+ user, you have training videos available at start-up. Your best option is probably in the help tab at the top where you can search by contents, index or search (available to all Softplan users).

While many people seemed not to realize it, in the past the printed "Learning SoftPlan" manual and the program Help were in fact the same document, primarily a listing of the features and functions in the program.
Rather than including a 900+ page manual that simply duplicates information already available in the program, the "Drawing with SoftPlan" manual is now included instead, whit its focus being on the steps to create a residential plan using SoftPlan.
The SoftPlan channel on YouTube provides another source of useful information, and as mentioned above, video tutorials are also available to those who are SoftPlan+ subscribers.
If you are simply looking for a list of what is new and improved in SoftPlan 2018, the best place to look might well be the 'SoftPlan 2018 Upgrade Brochure' found on the 'SoftPlan 2018Upgrade' page of the SoftPlan website.

It is just sometime I forget the exact route to accomplish my goal. Like the last time was putting a slope ceiling on a bath I was bidding to add a large ADA access shower. The existing ceiling was sloped t&g pine and the quickest way to refresh my memory was looking at the 2014 user guide. Using the index a quick look as all I needed. But looking at the user guide I realize how much is missing because of improvements. I sure softplan offering a hard copy up-to-date would be a easy sell. Just my thoughts!
