I used this as a technical writer for documentation user guides, both print and web-based help. The user interface is fairly easy to use and the product has a ton of functionality, although it takes a while to learn it all. Loved how easy it was to see all...

There are a lot of weird, one off bugs that really impact QOL. The fact that topics marked as excluded in the TOC show up in the search panel SEVERELY impacts my life.

Program is not particularly visually appealing. While providing a sort of sleek appearance, the dark color scheme is not very amenable to persons with varying contrast preferences and requirements (especially the long duration user).
