I'm currently working on a project where the final product, a printed
manual, is being produced in Micosoft Word.

The company used PCAD and ORCAD for the electrical stuff, namely pc
board layouts and schematics, and AUTOCAD for the mechanical drawings.

On past manuals, much pain was endured in trying to get mechanical
drawings, board layouts, and schematics into the maintenance manual.
Nothing wanted to convert to anything recognized by Word.

Is there a tool that will 1) make the conversions into something Word
recognizes with little pain OR 2) nicely replace Word as the publishing

Recommendations welcome.
