TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
We are reviewing documentation standards and would greatly appreciate your
input. When adding graphics to tech docs, where do you place them on the
page (right, left, center) and why do you place them there? Also, if you use
more than one column on the page, please let me know how many you use and in
which column the graphic is placed.
Additionally, if anyone has any current research on placement of graphics
from an adult learning perspective or from a human factors engineering
perspective that you can point me to, I would appreciate that as well.
Thanks in advance,
