Subject:Buying software oneself in order to learn it From:Ellen Vanrenen <ellen -dot- vanrenen -at- clear-technology -dot- com> To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Mon, 17 Dec 2001 12:44:19 -0700
Is it customary for technical writers to buy software themselves to load on
their PCs in order to learn that particular software? I have bought RoboHelp
and FrameMaker, and I am thinking of buying Photoshop.
Or, do most technical writers find more clever and less costly ways to pick
up skills? If so, what are these ways?
