I'm creating chapter-based software user manuals using InDesign—where's the
horror? I use its book feature to manage the projects.

Framemaker has a steeper learning curve, IMO, but Kat could pull the same

in A Book. Personally, I think it's easier to place graphics in ID than in
FM, but that may be just be me.
