Hi Ian and others: At the moment it's a once-off thing, but it's something that I'm planning to do more often as time goes on. I really need to get this documentation in order; the easier it is to do it on a regular basis the more likely it is to be done on a regular basis ;-). I already have setup a system that can generate pdf's from a whole bunch of text files, BOM's, Word files and ps files, it's just a hassle getting the pcb and sch files into ps. It's easy enough to do, but tedious for hundreds of pcb's/schematics.
