Create online user manual
By using Paperturn, you can easily and
automatically convert your existing user manual PDF file into an online user manual.
Your online user manual will have the look
of a "real" (physical) user manual, with facing "flip turn" effect
pages, and will benefit from inbuilt qualities designed to strengthen your
online presence. Create an online user
manual by using the Paperturn flipbook system.
Create an online user manual
When you use Paperturn to convert your existing user manual PDF file, the pages of your new online user manual are positioned
facing each other, and are turned using our flip turn effect – giving your
reader the feel of a "real" (physical) user manual – there are no
long files for your reader to scroll through, meaning that your manual will be
both easy to read and, crucially, to engage with.
Reduce your costs for support
As the owner of a Paperturn online manual,
you will be able to direct customers with queries to links / relevant portion
of your manual – where they can find the answers to their queries, thereby
removing the need for you to spend time/money in drafting answers to customer
This is possible because the individual
pages of the online user manual are given their own addresses (URLs), as opposed
to one complete file with only one address (URL).
Paperturn optimizes the online user manual
for being found in Google when users are searching for its content - meaning
that your customers are more likely to find the solutions on their own - again, saving
you both time and money.
Your online presence is strengthened
The online user manual will form new
valuable content that can be added to a range of online platforms (website,
Facebook, etc.). Your online user manual will constantly be accessible, when
your customers need it.
Having an online user manual means that your
customers will always have access to the most "up to date" information
available. This is because the online user manual can easily be overwritten /
updated without any loss of its existing features and settings.
If a mistake is spotted in the online user
manual and you have a PDF file with a correction of that mistake, then the
original PDF file can simply be overwritten by the new PDF file. The existing
and settings of the online user manual will automatically be
As online use of your user manual increases
– your physical user manual may eventually become obsolete. Both time and money will be saved; it will no
longer be necessary to go through the troublesome and cost-intensive steps that
are involved in changing a physical user manual, and your printing and
distribution costs could be vastly reduced. If a mistake is noticed in the
online user manual it is not necessary to re-print and re-distribute new material;
the changes are simply made online.

Online user instructions
A user manual is often comprehensive as it
addresses many issues, e.g. requirements, installation, user instructions,
disclaimer etc. If it isn't necessary to
cover all these topics, and the only thing needed is online user instructions,
Paperturn is fully capable of making just that.
Create online user instructions
Paperturn can be utilized for creating
online user instructions regarding digital as well as physical products. The
only prerequisite is that you have an existing PDF file with user instructions.
By using Paperturn, a PDF file with user
instructions can be turned into online user instructions. As opposed to
traditional user instructions (printed as a catalogue etc), it is possible to
integrate a video into the online user instructions. For instance, if there is
a video on YouTube that instructs the viewers in using a certain product, this
video can be incorporated into online user instructions that deal with the same
product. This is easily created in the settings of Paperturn.
