Configurable publishing options

The layout of the content of your topic pages is controlled by what you enter in the editor but there are many other aspects of your output that you can configure individually for different output formats. These options are generally configured with settings in the Configuration section of your project in the Project Explorer. The layout of your PDF output is controlled by special template files that you can create and edit with the Manual Designer program included with Help+Manual.

The topics in this chapter provide an introduction to configuring the options for each format with references to documentation of the individual settings available for each format.

See Help Formats for more information on the individual output formats.
