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.
I've undergone the same conversion Gordon mentions. My aim these days
is to document the important stuff so that it doesn't get lost in the
weeds. Yes, I know you can use the main doc for important thing and the
reference doc to cover everything, but I question the use of having
pages and pages full of things like:
"Exit - click to return to the previous task".
Might as well leave that for a tooltip or the equivalent. Yes, it would
help if I could specify what the previous task was. But we know only at
run time, which is too late for printed or PDF documentation.
