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.
Milan - It's about work flow. I'm busy most of the time. I prefer to
use one tool as much as possible rather than flipping through
tools...1 to write, 1 to layout, etc. I have done it, I will do it
again. But I'm a pretty efficient guy at work who likes keeping his
work weeks to 40 hours.
Bill - Whereas the PagerMaker bar is decent, it's no wordprocessing
toolbar. Where is the "Paste Special" option? That alone would make me
VERY happy. I could make a list, but honestly, is InDesign meant to be
a word processor? Is that the intent of it's code?
No. 'nuff said. You can bend it all you want, it's just not That Kind
of Tool...yet. I use it every day. I like it, but I don't like it for
300 page manuals.
