Thank you for your suggestion, but with flaming like this I can see why
people who are new to the profession don't usually post on here. Since
being on this list, 95% of the postings don't even relate. How many Admin
posting do you get asking to stay on subject? I am posting something that
is related to the topic of Technical Writing while most people post mindless
opinions about things that really don't pertain to the profession. I have
tried posting a couple of times and every time someone has flamed me. I am
really getting tired of it and am about ready to get off the list. This
needs to be a place where people should feel like it is alright to ask
questions. That is what it is advertised as.

Read the archives - There had been tons of electrons and bytes wasted on
this issue.

My position is expanding into proposal and SOQ writing, along with contract
administration. The only type of formatting software that my company has
right now is Quark. This is great if all you are doing is brochures and
smaller marketing materials. I am trying to sell my Division Manager on
FrameMaker. I have read about it on Adobe's website but am a new user.
Could you please give me some real-world, tried and true experiences and
opinions about the software. My pros for the software is the added
formatting that it has for large documents. The people here have been doing
their proposals on Word templates. I think that FrameMaker can be an asset.

Thanks ahead for your comments.
