Using the command !maketitle you can tell UDO to generate a title page built with information you set in the preamble with the following commands:
|!docinfo [title]:|| The title of the documentation e.g. |
The guide toor
The introduction to.
|!docinfo [program]:||The name of the software or theme you describe inside the documentation.|
|!docinfo [programimage]:||The filename of an image UDO shall display on the title page instead of !docinfo [program].|
|!docinfo [version]:|| This is used for version information e.g. |
|!docinfo [date]:||The date you have written the documentation or the program.|
|!docinfo [author]:||The name of the author of the documentation.|
|!docinfo [authorimage]:||The filename of an image UDO shall display on the title page above the name of the author.|
|!docinfo [address]:||The street, town, country etc. where the author lives. Optionally you can enter any other text that will be displayed below the name of the author on the title page, such as email addresses.|
You don't have to use all commands but you should use one command at least if you are using the command !maketitle.
When used !maketitle should only be used directly after !begin_document. To use this command at another place of the source file is allowed but there could be problems.
The title page will be printed on a single page when converting to ST-Guide or Windows Help. This is a great help for people with small screens. From the title page you will be able to jump to the table of contents.
Converting to LaTeX UDO generates a single page using the title page environment built with the information from the preamble.
If you want to make your own title page you have to use some tricks. You will find an example inside the UDO distribution that shows you how to make userdefined title pages.
