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

Have you all used other software? Framemaker? Quark Expires? etc.
Also, have you all tried LaTex?
