I received Word 95 last week and was surprised at the new manual, which
is much shorter than my Word 6 manual. The only step-by-step
procedures that I saw as I skimmed were in the installation section.

Are your companies moving to shorter manuals? Are you relegating
step-by-steps to the helps? How have your customers responded? How do you
decide what to leave in and what to eliminate?
