If one of my editors downloads a manual I uploaded, does their download also included the template of the PDF file I created on my pc and store the (new) template onto their pc too?

@Karin - Currently PDF templates are not synced between users. You would have to manually send the PDF template to your editor to use.

OK, thanks for letting me know - I'll now know what to do.

I'm trying to download manuals from a space I cloned, but I can't tell which space the ScreenSteps Desktop is pulling from. I also can't tell how to change which space it pulls from. Can you point me in the right direction?

@John -

When you download manuals you aren't downloading them from a specific space. They are all of the manuals that you have permission to view.

If you have multiple manuals that have the same name then you can change that in the website admin interface.

Name your manuals with unique names so that you can distinguish them on the backend and when importing. Then add the generic name as the Public name. Your end users will see the generic name. But you will have the more detailed name when you are working with the manual
