We use PDF – we detail everything out with screen shots etc and make it to where it’s as easy as we can possibly make it. But in the end, it’s all based on user interpretation – if they even read the documentation that is! :)

Whatever you all use, (regardless of any copyright concerns) if the text in the documentation is not searchable by the end user then it may not worth be documenting IMO .

Ok what do you use for PDF ?

Adobe Acrobat ?

How can we make a set template ? Do you have a copy, I can use ?

Then I can simply change logo, text etc and save for our use.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We are on mac and use Apple Pages which comes with a host of templates to choose from – we then alter the full styling with each theme and layout everything to match the theme’s colors, fonts etc etc we take a considerable amount of time creating and crafting them based on feedback over the years – but basically on a mac you can make a pdf out of anything you can print as it’s built in to the os – just not so sure about windows based machines I’m afraid (I’m sure there has to be something?)

I do HTML for HTML templates….. PDF ’s for wordpress templates.

- I find wordpress users don’t want to look at code. They just want instructions - PDFs can be printed nicer - They can give the pdf to their client easier and be more professional

That’s my reasoning.

I should clarify – I use indesign to create my PDF ’s.

My background is in catalogue design, so I feel right at home with master pages etc.
