Is it somehow not stress when the SME for your doc update tells you, "Sorry, I not allowed to talk to you any more. I'm on another project now. You'll have to get your info from Joe Newguy," and Joe knows nothing about the project except what he's been reading in the existing version that you're trying to rewrite?

Or you need to write the next version and Joe is relying only on the current version that *you* wrote. It gets worse when Joe claims you don't understand the project and all of his understanding is based on your documentation.

New! Doc-to-Help 2013 features the industry's first HTML5 editor for authoring.
