What software do you use to do the documentation to support your
wireframes? (eg, the tables that list out each interface item,
description, system response, error states, etc.) The same software
that you use to create the wireframes? (and if so, what software is
At my last company, we did wireframes in Visio and the element tables
in Word. So we had to paste the Visio wireframes into Word and update
two documents, which I hated. But Visio can't handle tables well, in
terms of wrapping the text, tabbing through them, etc. (Or can it?
Perhaps there are features for tables that I don't know about?) Does
Omnigraffle have features for creating and using tables like Word
Or have you dispensed with element tables entirely, in favor of
annotations, and if so, can I see samples and how do your developers
feel about that?
