Greetings,

I use Pagemaker. It is an expensive program though. I like it a lot.

Subject: Software for Creating Lab Manuals

I am using MS Word to create lab manuals, which are often more than
80 pages. It cannot do some of the things I want it to do (e.g. put the
footer where I want it
on a page in landscape mode). Several times I have been told that Word
is
not
good for big documents like these -- especially when they have diagrams
in
them.
Have you all used other software? Framemaker? Quark Expires? etc.
Also, have you all tried LaTex?
