If you use MS Word, there is a little programme called MACRODE.EXE for
designing macro dialog boxes. It is fairly easy to use (although my
experience with it is limited), and you can make mock ups of dialog boxes
and perhaps complete screens without any code behind them. Then you can
use your trusty screen capture utility to capture the finished screen.

There are other development tools around that allow you to make screen
mock-ups but I am only a techwhirler and not a propeller-head so I don't
know anything about them!
