All,

I write for the government, which means MS Word is pretty much my world,
with occasional (though rare) ventures into the Adobe Suite. Thus, most of
my experience is just using the MS Office tools. However, one of our
software architects asked me the following question, and I don't know the
answer. Any suggestions?

"I find myself running into the limitations of Microsoft Word (2011 edition
for that Mac) with respect to embedded drawings. The built-in drawing tools
seem quite inadequate and embedding Visio diagrams that I can't edit
in-place is frustrating. What suite of tools do you recommend for technical
documentation that includes quantities of embedded figures and diagrams?"

Thoughts?
