Hello Everybody.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I know frames are an old way of design but here is my problem.

I have turned my boats manual into web version. In other words i can view the manual on browser. It is not hosted on any site.

I used frames to make an index and content section. The content section was individual pages which linked to diagrams and details. These could be printed out easily to aid fault finding.

I tried using templates but these are not easily printable and using PHP or SSI may not be viable unless it works as a stand alone as the manual is stored on a hard drive as well as Onedrive. 

Maybe I'm better off using a completely different format alogether, like Powerpoint .

Any thoughts truly appreciated.

HTML Frames are never a solution, sorry.  And if this isn't going on the web, there's no need for HTML.

 

Convert your manual to PDF.  PDF is first & foremost a print document that is also searchable.  And with the addition of Bookmarks, navigation is quick & easy.  See tutorial for Acrobat Pro DC.
