TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I'm going to ask what may seem a silly question, but I need to get some information.
What is the big difference between PageMaker and FrameMaker? Are they each better
suited to publishing different types of documents? A while back, I thought that they
were competing products, but then Adobe acquired Frame.
Is one "higher-end" than the other? My company uses PageMaker. We are running v.
5.0 in Windows 3.1. We have purchased the 6.0 upgrade, but it has yet to be
installed. (And I am also waiting patiently to upgrade to Win95). Being the only
writer, I want to know as much as I can about the tools that can help me accomplish
the tasks set before me.
If any of you can shed some light on PM vs. FM, I would appreciate it. If you wish
not to clutter up the list, send comments directly to me at:
