Hi All,

Our team has been using MS Word for our project documentation. We write Requirements & Functional Specifications for each version of
the product.Due to version control and the co-existence of multiple versions, the document size has increased so much that shipping them via
mail is now a painful job and we have had to use file splitters. Our documents have use-case diagrams, screenshots, tables and call-outs. We use the 'track changes' and 'add comments' features to record review comments and incorporate them. Merging of such documents is also a probable requirement.

Can anyone suggest any other documentation tool which can be used to
perform all the aforesaid functions without increasing the document size substantially?

Thanks in advance.
