We have a complex web-based application and after doing a usability analysis, I recommended major changes in the user interface. But, my boss wants me to defer changes to the UI and instead concentrate on producing a more “user-friendly” user manual. I feel like if the UI is not user-friendly, there is no way I can make the manual user friendly. Besides, if the UI is user-friendly, who needs the manual? Should I just write the manual or insist on changing the UI?
