Do any programs exist that allow you to build your own LEGO manuals?
I want to create my own manuals, but I want them to look and feel like actual LEGO instruction manuals. So, I probably need a style guide and / or tool that helps me to achieve this. Are these tools and style guides available?

LPub is a program designed specifically to produce step-by-step construction documentation from LDraw files. I haven't tried it myself ( it's Windows-only) but I believe most of the fan-created instructions out there are made with it.

notes in his answer to a similar question there is a newer version, LPub 4, which also supports Mac.
