ANNOUNCE: Books for writers at http://www.writersbookmall.com

Okay, tech writers. Imagine a bookstore stocked with every
kind of book a writer might want...books on tech writing,
tech editing, medical/pharmaceutical writing, and help
systems....Books on software for writers (yes, on both Word
AND Frame - along with Dreamweaver, RoboHelp, and others).

Books on business and other nonfiction writing (including
marcom, proposal writing, and journalism).... Working on
that novel at night? How about books on writing novels,
screenplays, sci-fi, or poetry? Perhaps books on getting
published, finding an agent, or writing for magazines?
Would books on writing or editing skills come in handy at
work? How about a good dictionary or thesaurus?

Well, this bookstore exists. Books on all the above topics
and more are available at the Writers Book Mall -
http://www.writersbookmall.com - a proud participant in the
Amazon.com Associates Program. We thoughtfully organize
writers\' books into subjects that make sense for
writers, so you can find what you need. Happy browsing!

STORY: SnagIt Multi-User License

Dan the technical writer listened to his co-worker's statement with
disbelief.

"I don't need SnagIt," Heather said snidely. "The Print Screen key does
everything I need."

Dan didn't feel like confronting her - yet. Instead, he went to his
office, opened up SnagIt, and reminded himself of its many abilities
beyond simple screenshots. He listed out loud, "SnagIt captures text -
it captures it as editable text from places you can't normally capture."

SnagIt can capture every image from a Web site - simultaneously.

SnagIt also has video and printer capture capabilities.

SnagIt Studio allows you to annotate your captures --within the program.

With SnagIt, you can send your capture directly to the printer, as an
e-mail, to the Clipboard, save it as a file, etc."

He shook his head. What was Heather thinking? She just didn't know! She
was unaware that no matter the occupation, computer expertise or current
task, SnagIt improved the appearance of documents. That's part of why
SnagIt offered multi-user licenses -- because so many people found it so
useful!

He tapped his fingers to his forehead. If he knew, and he told her, and
she told others . . . eventually, the entire organization would improve
the way it worked!

"Not only do I want to help her succeed," Dan whispered, "But I vow -- I
will help improve the company as a whole."

No longer cowed by Heather's dismissal, Dan set out of his office to find
her.

As he walked, he unbuttoned his dress shirt to reveal the SnagIt t-shirt
underneath.
