MS Word Task Alternative Procedure

By mirrorman ·
I have a better way of performing a task in MSWord(it?s been tested on various platforms) and I want to know what the ramifications are if I document my findings in some ?How to?/Dummies-type? book. In other words, if I explain how something might work better, using MS Word Application, what kind of permission do I need?

I realize that if I propose my idea to MS Word, they?ll probably make me jump through a million hoops in addition making me disclose my idea to Microsoft. Is that necessary?

Can I just contact a publisher and ask them to publish my solution/idea to the world; especially when it involves MS Word application software?

My idea doesn?t involve changing code or developing anything. It just explains how to do something in a more efficient manner than what is currently available in the existing help files under MS Word.

Does it matter if I make money on the idea?

Let me know what first steps I need to take. Thanks.
