The layout and the tool are pretty independent (hopefully!). If I've got
a great layout that I've developed in Frame, and I'm all of the sudden
forced to use Word, I'll re-create my great layout in Word. No one should
be able to tell whether I've used Frame or Word to create the document.
All they see is a great looking document.

I agree with the above advice. Just tell them that you know all these
