F.A.Q

Q: What does LeaderCalc have that the PDF files don't?
A: LeaderCalc can generate leader combinations from 05X-8X and lengths from 4' (1.2m) to 17' (5.2m) in 1/2 foot (.15m) increments. LC can generate more customized leader package labels and allows for your own custom leader sleeve notes. LCr3 also provides detailed information on 19 of the most popular monofiliaments. All-in-all, LCr3 can generate over 1,500 different formula combinations whereas you get only 300 in LC-QwikCalc!.

Q: Is LeaderCalc free? And how about the PDF files?
A: Absolutely yes...forever. It took over 2 years of R&D to collect the formulas and develop the LC formula generation engine...all for you to enjoy a the click of a mouse button!

Q: Is LeaderCalc Open Source?
A: Absolutely no...forever! That's our secret how we developed the formula generation engine and how we store the formulas in our custom database...but if you're an Excel whiz, you could probably replicate it. It will take you some time, though; It took us several months of programming alone.

Q: What if I have problems with LeaderCalc on Excel or with the PDF files?
A: Go to the FishBetter forum and post your question. Support will be limited to functionality of LeaderCalc alone. We avoid supporting MS-Excel and Adobe Acrobat; we just aren't good techie help-desk types! See Microsoft's site (Excel) and Adobe's site (Acrobat Reader) for support and proper usage on these packages.

I recommend Foxit Reader from www.foxitsoftware.com.

It's much faster and smaller than Adobe. It's freeware.

Walter, I'm no computer genius, but when I open the PDF file, and go to tools, and then zoom, even with my poor eye sight its readable.

Walter,

Since the charts are made as PDF-files, you can just zoom in. Your PDF-reader has a zoom function, and you can get the fonts (almost) as big as you want. If you print the, well, you either have to get some bigger paper or use several sheet. The wide spreadsheets simply won't fit if the font gets too large.

When the type is too small to read .. the chart is USELESS!

I'm not understanding why many rows in leader-calc do not contain formulas. There is one out of five Borger formulas that I can see. Help!

The "LeaderCalc" would really be a great tool if I could download it so I could read it. I do have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on my system, problem is the print is so small I can hardly make it out. When I try to enlarge the image and print it in landscape mode it will not let me, any suggestions? Thanks for your anticipated assistance.
