Create a PDF template

Having documentation online is great - it's easy to update, easy to share, and easy to find. But many of your readers may prefer to get a PDF download of your manual - so, we'll print create a PDF of the prototype so your team can check it out.

Before we print one off, we'll first want to customize a PDF template so it looks nice (has your logo, etc.).

Go to Preferences

Go to Preferences

Remember, to get to Preferences in a Mac is different than in a Windows machine.

Mac - ScreenSteps > Preferences

Windows - Edit > Preferences

Click "PDF Templates"

Click "PDF Templates"

Add a template

Add a template
Add a name and choose your logo

You can do quite a bit from the PDF template editor - for purposes of the prototype, I'm just going to have you do two things:

  1. Give your template a name
  2. Choose a logo
Align the logo

Add a logo on the Title Page

Add a logo on the Title Page

Go to the title page and add your logo.

Customize until you're satisfied

Although I'm just having you do two customizations, you can spend as much time in here as you want if PDF appearance is really important for your team. And if you know cascading style sheets (CSS), you can add even more style to your PDF.
