TUTORIAL TEMPLATE INSTRUCTIONS
These are the instructions for completing a tutorial following the PSPUG Tutorial template (current version = instructions_v3.htm). All of these instructions have been included as comments within the template code itself, but you may prefer to view them on screen or print this document as you commence writing a tutorial.
The instructions mainly deal with the top section of the tutorial code in the tuttemplate_v3.htm document, in which you need to make various changes according to your tutorial name and its content.
The rest is divided into the tutorial rows - each containing 2 cells (the image cell and the instruction cell). Each row is divided by a Separator Row - of a specified height - so that all of our tutorials have the same look and feel.
