> I have written IT training manuals where there was a table, first column
was the step number, followed in the next column with text instructions and
then in the final column, the relevant figure.
Sounds like you have a good start. I have done manuals in this format

think it's a good clear approach. (Of course, getting the content correct
is always king.)
