First of all, thank you for all your quick answers.

Ok, so it seems I'm quite on my own, because I already read all the
info in the Help section  :)

I started writing my own tutorial, so, if someday I start getting
things sorted out with RKWard I can try edit the wiki or collaborate
in translating to my language (catalan), because I don't have any
knowledge in programming (I'm in the health sciences sector).

Implementing that would be a great feature.

Ok, thanks.

Kind regards,
