Since a manual I am making will primarily be displayed only in PDF on the screen, I want to make it landscape. I'm used to having huge monitors so I'm trying to work out the appropriate dimensions so that the user has a good experience seeing the whole page on one screen at 100%.
Right now I have it set at 10" x 6.5" with 0.4" margins. Although I haven't had a chance to test at lower resolutions on standard (non-laptop) monitors.
What dimensions do other TWs use for their landscape manuals?
