Creating Manuals in Visme

Manuals are essential guides that offer in-depth insights into how different tools, systems, or products work. Knowing the “ins and outs” of manuals is crucial for those who want to get the best results from their designed manuals. This article is here to break down the important parts of manuals, emphasizing how they play a key role in improving the user experience. We’ll also provide practical tips on efficiently creating manuals within the Visme platform.

Below is a collection of learning resources to help you hone in on your Manual and achieve successful, user-friendly documentation.


How to Start Your Manual

Manual Templates: Here you can find a vast collection of ready-to-use design templates to browse, which are all available in Visme to jumpstart your Manual. Once you find the template you like, select it to log into Visme and start working on it within the editor.


To create your Manual from within Visme: 

Open your web browser and visit the Visme website. Then, sign in to your Visme account or create one if you don’t have one.

Once you’re logged in, you’ll land on the Visme dashboard. Go to the left menu and click on Create New to start a new project.

 In the drop-down menu for project creation, you’ll see different categories. To make a Manual, select the Documents category.

In that category, scroll sideways to find the Manual section. Click on it to see the Visme Manual templates.

Check out the different Manual templates available. Visme has lots of options for different industries and styles. When you find one you like, click on it to pick it.

When you choose a template, you’ll be redirected to the Visme editor. Here, you can change and edit everything in the template to fit your details.

Note: In this video, you’ll see how you can locate the template library and select a desired template for your project.
