I agree with Robert. If I were to make a list of all the things that I do
in a given day, "research" would be at the top of the list. I'm a bit
worried about a tool vendor that doesn't understand what their users are
doing on a daily basis.

I wouldn't even think to include "copying/pasting" as one of the things
that I do every day, because it's so trivial. But it appears the easyDITA
thinks it's one of the seven most important ways that I spend my time?
Sounds like they've structured their survey to collect data that will
support some marketing initiative they're planning (New research shows that
technical writers spend X percent of their time copying and pasting!).
