Fusion 360 API Reference manual for offline viewing

Can Fusion 360 API Reference manual be made available in .chm for offline viewing? Or some similar format...

Here's a link to a chm version of the help.  Hopefully it will help.  To get it to work correctly you'll probably need to access the Properties dialog for the file and click the "Unblock" button, as shown below.  The file works fine on Windows and there are chm viewers for Mac but I haven't tried them.

The primary format for publishing the help is the online version.  The fact that the chm is available is just by luck.  The same help system that is used to product the help for Inventor was enhanced to also allow it to be used for Fusion's help.  Inventor requires a chm file so we end up getting that for free and weren't using it at all until I posted it here.  To do some other format would likely require quite a bit of work which I don't anticipate happening anytime in the near future.

I've posted a new version of the API help that corresponds with the Fusion update that went out this past weekend (Nov. 15, 2015).  The link is the same as in my initial response.

I want to update this post.  The original link doesn't work because the location it references no longer exists.  I've since made the chm available directly on my website.

Here's another update.  The chm file is now updated and made available for each Fusion 360 release.  The link is on the "Welcome to the Fusion 360 API" help page, as shown below, and here a direct link to download the chm.
