    This is a suggested list of material you can or should use to increase your familiarity with Campaign Cartographer 3 and its accompanying software.

    Standard tutorials and help



    1. Do the Quick Start Guide available from the Help menu in CC3.
    2. Read and follow the Essentials Guide to CC3 (or the appropriate add-on). The Essentials Guide is available as a printed booklet with the hardcopy, or as a pdf with a download-only purchase.
    3. Register your copy of CC3 and download the CC3 User Manual from the registration page.
    4. For individual command reference, check put the Windows help files available from within CC3 (Help menu).

    Purchasable material



    1. Get the Tome of Ultimate Mapping. It was written for CC3, but is mostly applicable to CC3+ too.
    2. Get a copy of the Cartographer's Annual subscription. Most months contain a pdf mapping guide showing you how to create a certain style of map.

    Third-party help



    1. Check out the user-submitted tutorials available on the website.
    2. Download and examine user-submited maps from the map library to see how other people have created maps.
    3. Ask people on the community forum or the mailing list for how they have created things.
    4. For support for the unofficial add-ons published by the Vintyri group, check this post

    General tips on creating artistic maps



    1. Check out the Cartographer's Guild forum, for all things mapping-related.

    Printing maps as PDFs



    It is often convenient to print CC3 maps to pdf, as this allows you to share them easily and also take them to a print service for large-scale printing. There are several free virtual printers available, that let you print CC3 maps as pdfs:

    1. CutePDF
    2. PDF995
    3. PDFCreator

    Once you've installed any of them, you can use them like any other Windows printer, only they create pdfs for you.
