I have a love/hate relationship to those Winword plug-ins, too.

I divide the workload between two machines: The year-before-last-year's
screamer (AKA experimenting machine) for the application, screen-shot program
and so, and my current working machine.

This way the new application (probably an alpha version) may crash without
crashing my editor or anything else essential.

...but you might not be able to keep that old machine.

These machines are networked (you can do that cheaper than with my Novell
Netware 3.11, but the file server is an old 386/40 MHz). Therefore I can shoot
a screen, save it to the server and include it in my manual.
