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.
A colleague wanted me to post a question to the group:
He is writing training manuals and wants to capture screen shots. He then
wants to add call out "balloons" with text to explain the various screen
elements. Currently, he uses Paint Shop Pro or RoboHelp for the screen
shots, then imports them into Visio to add the extra graphics. Is there an
easier way? Is there a package that would allow him to do this all in one
He would appreciate any expertise you can provide. You may answer to me and
I will summarize for the list if there is interest.
