the "ANSYS Fluent Getting Started Guide" refers to a "Fluent Customization Manual". Where can that be found ?
The "ANSYS Fluent User's Guide" states:
Customizing Fluent (p. 2667), provides information about using ANSYS ACT to create simulation wizards that
can be run from either stand-alone Fluent or Fluent in Workbench.
So, ACT = Customization ????
It is mindboggling that customers have to go and hunt for the manuals. Likewise, I had to hunt the manual "CAD integration" and the "DesignModeler User's Guide". Also, I unearthed only an older version of the "Fluent Tutorial Guide".
I use the "Academic Student Release" release 19.2. As a workaround, manual for prior releases of Fluent are also welcome.
Could someone please post of comprehensive list of all available ANSYS manuals, at least for Fluent, and the addresses where they can be found on the internet ? Preferably in pdf format, but htm is also welcome.
Your kind assistance is greatly appreciated.

Click on Help within Fluent and this should open the documentation. In the list of products on the left side, look for the Fluent section, and it's there.

Thank you, but not yet the solution.
There is no "Help" on my Fluent GUI.
Under the question mark I find
a link to the User's Guide
context-sensitive help, which doesn't do anything
Online technical resources, pointing to https://www.ansys.com/support/customer-portal and "We’re sorry, the page cannot be found." - what a miserable mess
What I did find is a document "ANSYS ACT Customization Guide for Fluent" - is this it ? It is only 22 pages Long. My posting mentions "Fluent Customization Manual" because this is exactly the term as printed in that other Manual. It is not asking for too much if one strives to find a Manual with exactly this title.
Also the "ANSYS ACT Developer's Guide" does not seem to disclose what "ACT" stands for. Anyone Aware of it ?

Sorry for the inconvenience.
Can you try Fluent 19.2 application> ? mark > User's Guide Contents > Login using customer portal credentials > Click on Fluent 19.2 > Click on ^ symbol at the top left > Fluent > Under Documentation you would find Fluent Customization Manual
You can also search this Online help for any keywords. The usual link for Online help is https://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/main_page.html?lang=en&v=19.2
You can also refer to this post incase you have trouble accessing the Online help login:
ACT stands for ANSYS Customization Tool, I believe it's different from the Fluent Customization guide you are looking for.
Please let us know if this works for you.
