Not simple, but you should be able to do that using BUFEXCHG. Can't tell much more, never tried myself...

Thanks for your hint, I will try it.
By the way, can I add some text on instructions? For example, before removing parts with "Motorized Train" and so on.

Two possibilities:
- generate text as LDraw parts using txt2dat tool. Pro: LPub source remains self contained. Con: can be tricky to orient the part not to get weird 3D look.
- Insert external images containing text (in lpub, edit -> add image). Simpler theoretically, better look easily achieved. But external images can be tricky to use especially for multi-step pages, lpub is notoriously buggy there.

I have another idea, use brick with letter to spell word as a ldr part then insert to main, is this ok?

There's also the old school method of opening the files in a graphics editor (e.g. GIMP) and adding the text there Smile

LPub does output .png files which can be joined in a .pdf.

My point is that there comes a point where elbow grease has to fill in the blanks. The natural tendency of a computer orientated person (myself included) is to automate everything. But it's not always the best way.
