Tool for Creating PDF Tutorial

4:19 PM

Today, a lot of people search tutorial how to bla bla bla. Many people write the tutorial with their style. But many people are asking how to make a tutorial? Just write what you know step by step and then you've created the tutorial. Many friend asking me what tool we used for creating tutorial. I like writing, so i prefer to create pdf tutorial than create video tutorial. I've some reason for my choice, they are
  • PDF Tutorial is smaller than Video tutorial for the best quality of image. I don't need a long time for upload. As you know, today in Indonesia i can't get great connection of internet
  • I prefer reading than watching, with pdf tutorial we can read again and again the point we don't understand. The video tutorial make me to rewind the video again and again. And i don't like it :D
  • In PDF tutorial we can read clearly the instruction. On video tutorial sometimes i can't understand the instruction, because speech in another country is different. I think not bad if international video tutorial giving the subtitle :lol. 

If you want my tutorial just visit, because all of my tutorial on this site and using bahasa Indonesia, someday i will write tutorial with english, but you can download my digital piano and traditional flute 3D application using blender on there for english version.

There, i want share what software i use for creating pdf tutorial. All of software i use is open source software for creative suite :D
