The Incomparable Word versus Outline Face off regarding: Educating the Old Puppies New Traps Rock Journalists Union, 1/23/07 This evening's Objective It is not by any stretch of the imagination Word versus Outline, it is Word AND Casing. A great many people have Word. Some have Casing. Couple of just have Edge.
Slide 1

The Great Word versus Edge Debate: Teaching the Old Dogs New Tricks Boulder Writers Alliance, 1/23/07

Slide 2

Tonight’s Goal It is not by any means Word versus Outline, it is Word AND Frame. A great many people have Word. Some have Frame. Couple of just have Frame. Ya can’t work in PCs and not have Microsoft Word (or its identical) in 2007.

Slide 3

Is the Most Famous the Best? Word’s omnipresence does not make it the BEST item, one and only that must be become friends with. Frame’s lack does not make it the most exceedingly awful item, one and only that must be found out as though you were on a desert island…

Slide 4

A Common Situation You have been enlisted by a hot new startup, Desert Island Software . YOU are the new Documentation Department. Your grumpy manager, who abhors documentation, has contracted you on the grounds that: a) he knows your companion\'s auntie from chapel, and b) his board let him know he needed to have a doc individual He said you have the monetary allowance to purchase ONE documentation device: Microsoft Word or Adobe FrameMaker. Which instrument do you purchase and why?

Slide 5

Frame’s Strengths It truly permits you to process archives. (You can make reports that have restrictive content, for instance; they act one path for one reason, yet then with two or three summons you can inspire them to act an alternate way.) It can make Books, not only a progression of documents. You can without much of a stretch make Table of Contents and Indices crosswise over records with Frame. You can get into a file’s Underwear Drawer – you can make a .mif record that demonstrates to you a significant part of the underpinnings of a Frame doc. A .mif document is an unadulterated content form of the Frame doc. In the event that you like charge lines, a .mif record is for you.

Slide 6

Frame’s Weaknesses It is hard to learn and more hard to instruct how to move. (It has a STEEP expectation to absorb information. It is a record preparing apparatus for expert essayists, not a word handling instrument for people.) You need to work at creating a snappy doc in Frame. (You need to settle on 3 choices before you get to a clear page; Word opens with one.) The last real upgrade of Frame (7.0) was numerous years prior; there have been overhauls from that point forward, yet they don’t address a portion of the niggly easily overlooked details that most 2007 programming does. “Dinosourish interface”.

Slide 7

Word’s Strengths You can simply begin writing. (It has a level expectation to absorb information.) Everyone utilizes it. (My children have utilized it for homework since they were in fourth grade.) It is much, much less demanding to use than Frame. (The short and Full menus alternative is only one case of convenience.) It has the Outlining element. (This has long been my most loved component of Word, and one few individuals use.) It permits you to alter menus. You can without much of a stretch make TOCs per doc, both in Outlining and in the content, if to stay informed concerning what is going on – in that record.

Slide 8

Word’s Weaknesses It can\'t make TOCs and Indices crosswise over records, regardless of what anybody claims. (‘Master Documents’ does not by any stretch of the imagination work.) I for the most part think Word maxes out at 1 mg records and 500 pages. I have made greater documents than those, yet I have had littler ones that smashed, as well. It has a numbering bug that pesters me a great deal in some cases. A considerable measure. Bookmarks in PDF don\'t hold the autonumbering in headings.
