Customizing Lesson Navigation Links In Manual Templates

This lesson will show you how to customize lesson navigation links when exporting manuals to HTML.

Before you begin this lesson you should familiarize yourself with the ScreenSteps HTML Template folder.

Copy a Topic Template

Make a copy of one of the Topic (manuals were formerly topics) HTML templates in the ./Templates/HTML/Topic folder.

Open Lesson Template File

In the copy of the topic template folder you just created and copied you will find a Lesson folder. Open the Default.html file in your favorite text editor.


Find the LESSON LINK:PREVIOUS section in the template file.

Modify Template Text

Change the text in this section to whatever suits your needs. Also change the text in the LESSON LINK:NEXT section.

In this example I've changed the link text from Previous Lesson to Previous Tutorial.


Now you can export a manual and select your new template.

The Result

The navigation in your exported manual will display the new text you entered in the lesson template.
