The Print Manual Designer

The Print Manual Designer is a separate program used for editing the .mnl print manual template files that define the layout and appearance of your published PDF files and printed manuals.

In addition to defining the layout of your PDF pages, you can also add additional pages and content not included in your project, including cover and back cover pages, an introduction, a formatted table of contents, title pages for individual chapters, headers and footers, a formatted index and multiple endnotes pages. You can also add your own custom pages and insert topics from your project and external Help+Manual XML files.

The Print Manual Designer has its own help so this topic only describes the basic procedures for opening templates for editing and selecting them in your projects. Print manual template files have the extension .mnl.
