How to to create a user guide, alongside a similar document to point out and describe bugs
I am currently testing a piece of vehicle management software. To kill two birds with one stone I am also going to create a user guide, alongside a similar document to point out and describe bugs. The document would need to be in a PDF format and would be screenshot heavy. If anybody has done anything similar could you advise a piece of software fit for this job? I.E PDF creation, snipping tool? I am trying to avoid word at all costs.
Since you mentioned Word, I assume the tool (and the user interface for the software under test) run on Windows. There are a lot of free or inexpensive screen capture utilities for Windows. This article recommends PicPick but also mentions several others. Regarding document editing tools that can produce a PDF, I recommend using Google Drive. Of course this does not constitute a bug tracking system, but you did not ask for one.
