Re: Documenting the user interface--unnecessary features?
Well I guess in some instances it can be as much a culture decision as^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
anything. If you have a genuine need to document every single UI button,
widget and doo-dah, then do so.
However anywhere I've worked, I've been able to question WHY something was
in the product, so maybe that's a discussion to have with your manager.
Perhaps certain UI items have been left in rather then being removed because
it was easier for development? Who knows.
But, if your manager says it should be doc'd, then doc'd it'll be (I'd still
argue my case with him though.. but that's just me).

Quote from my manager: "If it's in the product, then it should be in doc. Is
how I generally see it."
