These questions were only shown to the respondents who are involved in technical writing.
12% of all the survey respondents are involved in technical writing, though only 14% of this group identified technical writing as their official job role. Unsurprisingly, people who are officially technical writers are more likely to produce customer-facing documentation than other respondents.
When asked about their job roles, respondents were able to select more than one option.
Free customizable text editors are used by a large share of people involved in writing documentation, while only 2% of all respondents currently use professional authoring assistance software.
63% of those involved in technical writing have considered using a professional tool for authoring documentation. JetBrains will in fact be launching the first public EAP of a professional authoring and publishing system in fall of 2021. Want to be the first to try it? Register now!
