Afternoon all!

InDesign (CS2). My company uses it, I'm learning to hate it. Not that
it's a bad program, I just find it WOEFULLY lacking for documentation.

Two questions:
1. Should I bite the bullet and find some workarounds for creating
manuals in ID? (Some pointers would be great!)
2. Or should I start the painful process of convincing the powers to
invest in other software (Such as Frame?...again, suggestions?)

I am creating content from 10 - 300 pages in length. Photos,
illustrations, technical, web and pdf content included.
