I like HyperSnap. It's an excellent screen capture program and has very good editing options. If you want to go the free route, MWSnap is the best free one I've seen so far. -- Regards, Shmuel Wolfson Technical Writer 052-763-7133 Brian Lamborn wrote: All, Not really a FrameMaker

PDF XChange Viewer is a really easy-to-use (free) tool for commenting on PDFs. It's something that you do not have to teach the reviewers. It's self explanatory. And you do not have to allow users to comment on the PDF in order to use this tool. -- Regards, Shmuel Wolfson Technical Writer 052
