I have been getting tired of tacking Post-It notes all over the place
for my favorite techniques that aren't written up where I need it.
And lo! there's a tool that I can use for this, which is (frankly)
something of a surprise.

I've been learning a lot about Author-it lately for a new
project. It turns out that there's a new product called Author-it
Assist that I can use to build my own personalized help files. I can
use it to grab content from a wide variety of sources and add it to
the application. (What this means is that I'll never have to look up
again--for the umpteenth time--how to do watermarks in Word, or do a
couple of security locking things in another program; I just write
this up and bind it in as context-sensitive online content.)

I am seriously pumped. Has anyone else been using Author-it Assist
yet and if so, have you got tips for me on how you're using it?

Yours truly,
