    Creation of technical documents?

      From my original post here: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2104192

       

       

      I work as the sole engineer at a very large crane company, and have been given the task of creating a document for our sales guys that sum up the most important aspects of each model.

       

      I'm hoping to create a PDF with technical drawings, tables of data, a table of contents with links to the pages for each subject, an Index of important terms that are also linked to relevant pages.

       

      One search online recommended LaTex, but I'm looking for something a little less cryptic, hopefully with a GUI. Do any of the Adobe Creative Cloud products fit my needs?

       

      Would InDesign fit this purpose? Is it a more user friendly product in the same style as LaTex or am I in the wrong area? I'd like to know so I can look at some tutorials before I begin my trial. Thanks!
