I am new to the list. This may have been discussed but I would like to kow
if anyone uses publisher and what they think of it. What is it especially
"good at"? I use Word '97 and find it great for just about everything, also
an industry standard for my clients, as I often create an interactive
version of smaller workbooks and manuals to accompany the hard copy for
training. But, I am always looking for a good progam for writing manuals
and text, not necessarily interactive. There was a recent "clue" under this
heading refering to Publisher handling graphics? Would love as much info as
possible. If this is over talked about on the list, you can email me
off-list about it.
Also, any other programs techlisters admire?
