Hi everyone,

I'm in the midst of a discussing about bolding menu commands in
procedures.

I am writing a manual for a software program. My QA person is suggesting
that I bold the commands. For example, in the step "Click Save" save
would be bolded.

I'm not inclined toward bolding. I think bolding is more useful
intraining materials and tutorials where a user is being introduced to a
product and needs a lot of emphasis and reinforcement.

In the best case scenario, my manuals will only be referred to if people
get stuck.

I'm wonderng what do you all do when it comes to bolding.

Susan
