Writing a specification with Masterspec is to use the resourcefulness of the internet and the power of Word symbiotically. This manual will guide you through downloading the basis of your specification and then highlight the aspects of Word most useful to you in the customising phase. The Word assistance given covers all versions of Word to-date.

If you are completely new to Masterspec proceed through this guide sequentially. If not all the sections are self contained and can be used for the occasional reference.
