The goal of this research was to identify the needs of technical editors that could be supported through the development of computer tools. Additionally, our goal was to understand the technical editing context as it is relevant to the design of those tools. Expert technical editors were surveyed to study three issues relevant to the design of computer-aided tools the editing context, editing tasks and problems, and opportunities for designing computer-based tools. Potential design capabilities were identified. These include a networked document management system along with a comment capability that supported accurate text analysis support tools.
