Why not just send the client only the text as you want it published? Or
maybe send two versions - one for the user manual, and the other clearly
labeled as not for the user manual.

I'm not sure I follow. If you are looking for the client to edit the paper
into a final form, that doesn't seem likely to go well.


All the best,
Ryan
