"How do you make your instructions idiot proof"

its "screenshots & arrows" all the way down. If the shots are in focus , and the arrows are distinguishable from the shot, by being at a jaunty angle and brighty coloured , provided you also use text written in "user"* (and left or right of , rather than above or below the pic) than you have done all you can.

* speaking user means avoiding these phrases:

Dialogue box

Radio buttons
