Where can I download the Live 9 Manual?

In previous versions, the manual was included with the application. Is there a PDF manual for Ableton Live 9?

    The manual is actually inside of the Ableton application.

    I have a mac and when I needed the manual, I just went into my applications folder, right clicked on "Ableton Live 9 Suite" and chose Show Package Contents.

    From there I navigated to Contents->Legal and Docs->Docs

    And it was there I found the 600 page manual :D

    There is probably a similar procedure that can be used for Windows machines.

    The latest place to get it from Ableton directly is here:

    https://www.ableton.com/en/manual/credits/

    Go to the very bottom of the page and click on the download link for your language of choice.

    The Live 9 pdf manual is in the Docs folder of the location where the application was installed.

    On my system, it's: C:\ProgramData\Ableton\Live 9 Suite\Docs\User Manual English.pdf

    The manual that came with my Live does not seem to be up-to-date;  I have seen other users referring to documentation for Push "Clip Workflow" setting, and my copy of the manual doesn't have that.

    if you have live 9's manual you should just be able to do a search with the command or control f function and find it in the manual.

    Vester posted the correct updated link above, this is the same link you get from the manuals section under "learn push" area of the ableton web site.  It is UPDATED from the manual that installs with live 9 (or at least from the installer that I used), so you should replace your older copy.
