Ok, I have a very naive, simple question. Yesterday someone wrote:

"Frame can't search for text across chapters, has no outline mode, is
harder to export to HLP, and lacks Word's simple macro interface."

I've never really used Word's macro interface, and since I'm currently
thinking about moving to Frame, as y'all know, what exactly will I be
losing. In other words, those of you who use macros in writing manuals,
what the heck do you use them for? Is there something I could be doing to
make my life easier that I've been missing all these months??

Sometimes I feel like a dog
standin' on a tool box
in the back of a pickup truck
doin' 90 round a corner
just tryin' to hang on for dear life.
