I'm totally frustrated with the user documentation. It makes it very hard to get started using Open Workbench. In my particular case,

I'm trying to set up a single master project with multiple subprojects to be able to auto schedule the subprojects with a common resource pool. But all the user documentation is about how to click thru to insert a subproject, nothing about what actually happens with the subprojects, etc. For example

when I inert projects alpha and bravo into the master project, the subprojects dialog box shows only 2 instances of project Bravo, not project alpha and bravo separately. Delete one instance of Bravo, and there is no change to the master project. Delete the 2nd instance of Bravo, and the entire master project becomes blank.

all the documentation about how to click through the subprojects dialog box says nothing about how to control where the subproject is inserted (into project Alpha or into the master project.)

This sort of problem makes me want to go to MSProject because they have good documentation and tutorials included in the purchase price.
