>We have started using Visio (used to use RFFLOW, go figure) and most of
our writers/trainers seem to really like it. If you put 2-3 hours in
upfront and learn the basics of the tool, you can do some pretty slick
things, pretty quickly. You can also import bitmap pictures and very
quickly add call-outs, lines, boxes, etc. This is helpful, because you
can easily go back and edit all the extras - they don't become bitmaps as
they would in Paintbrush, nor to they "erase" the bitmap as adding things
does in Paintbrush. However, you can't actually edit the bitmap itself.

Deneba's Canvas (for Mac and Windows) allows editing of bitmaps
as well as adding draw (vector) callouts, and text. You can use layers
(handy to put draw in one layer, bitmap in another) and this is
handy for tracing -- lower (bitmap) layer can be displayed in a different
color... Can export Adobe Illustrator 88 (add ".eps" extension to file name
and can import into Pagemaker...)
