STORY: Dan the Tech Writer and his support group

Hello, my name is Dan, and I'm a technical writer.

Hello, Dan, the support group chorused.

I've been addicted to technical writing for some time now. First, I
started small, with little contract projects here and there . . .
before I knew it, I had a full time job for a software company. I was
just churning out documentation . . .

I knew there was no turning back when I joined the TECHWR-L discussion
list. I enjoyed debating about one or two spaces after the period,
identified with the Deer in Headlights Syndrome, and even spent a lot
of time discussing whether or not I was a writer and if I was indeed
an artist.

Dan cleared his throat and shook his head.

I thought it couldn't get any worse -- then SnagIt came into my life.

The group members nodded their encouragement.

I don't know how I ever accomplished anything before SnagIt! It's
such a time saver - with profiles, I created and stored my most
frequently used settings so I didn't have to constantly change my
configuration. Then with multiple outputs, I could simultaneously
send my capture to as many outputs as I wanted. And, SnagIt offers
more input and output options than any other screen capture program
--input an object, web, text, video, direct x, graphical or program
file!

Not only that, but in SnagIt Studio I added annotation like text, arrows
and clipart, and in the Catalog I easily selected multiple files to save,
convert, print and e-mail in batches!

Dan, spent, flopped into his chair.

A member turned to him and whispered desperately, Is SnagIt really as good
as you say?

Dan nodded weakly. He looked around him and realized that he hadn't
helped at all - every support group member was itching to get to a
computer to download SnagIt.

Inwardly, he smiled. At least if he couldn't help them, he'd enjoy
the company in the SnagIt online forum.
