It seems like Live now looks for Lessons in a different place, so I put together a similar way to write your own Lessons. However, these are global Lessons for Live & don't work for individual projects. This can still come in handy, for instance, I'm going to make a list of popular chord progressions that will be quick to view inside the program.
Unzip this file into your "Lessons" folder (a subfolder of your "Library") & the tutorial will be added to default Lessons. You need to keep the subfolders where they are. It's just a couple text files & won't overwrite any existing files.
If all goes well, open Live 5, click View>Lessons & you should see 'Notes to Self' above the default Lessons. Then you can learn to add your own.
Here is the text, if you don't want to download:
Due to the way the viewer worked I has to spell out $ as 'dollarsign' and / as 'backslash'. Also, 'whatever' mean literally whatever you want it to be, the * wouldn't appear.$Page How To Add Lessons
/How To Add A New Lesson./
Create a new folder in your Library folder named:
Create a new folder in your "whatever Category" folder named:
Create a txt file in the "whatever Lessons" folder named:
You can view your notes in any project by going to the "View" menu and choosing "Lessons".
You may also create a file in your Category folder named "CategoryDescriptionEN.txt" to add... guess what?... a category description!
/Editing The LessonsEN.txt Content/
To make a page with a title, type:
To display text in bold, type:
Everytime you save the txt file and reopen Live, the content will be updated.
You do not need to save anything to that Live set.
This is a non-destructive method.
If you wish to remove the lesson, just delete the "whatever Lessons" folder & it's txt file.
If you want to include pictures, you will have to save them as tif files & they have to be IBM (Intel) encoded.
On Mac you can convert any picture with the included app called "Graphic Converter"
On Windows there shouldn't be any problems, figuring it's a Windows format.
To include these pictures in your set, throw them in the "whatever Lessons" folder
& type the image file name into your txt file.

Hopefully this topic hasn't already been covered.
Please let me know if this helps you out or if anything needs editing.
I haven't tried to insert an image, but I assume it still works the same way.
