Hi Paige,

We use Continuus (and nothing else) to control our documentation. We control
our online help files (HTML, for a UNIX app), printed documents (for PDF
conversion to a CD-ROM), and company website. It works, but can be a struggle.

The interface is not intuituve (it is written by programmers for programmers, so
,naturally, no one can sit down and use it.) It has taked a long time for my
group to get used to it (and we still need occasional support from the Config.
Manager for some issues). But it has also saved our behinds on occasions, were
we have to recreate a file that was lost.

Feel free to email me with your specific questions. There are not many of us
Continuus users out there (that I have met, anyway).

Good luck!
