New: Upload PDF files and other documents, then link to them from your manual topics

April 25th, 2017

insert-document-buttonOne of the more common questions we get at Manula Support is:

“Can I upload PDF files and offer them as downloads from my manual?”

Our answer has always been:

“No sorry, you cannot upload PDF files, but you can upload them to your own website or a 3rd party file hosting service, then link to them using a regular website link”.

But as of today, our answer to this question will be:

“Yes, you can! Just use our Document Manager to upload your files to our server, then easily insert links to the files into your topics :-)”

Now live in your account. Enjoy!
