I am in need of a fairly robust way to communicate Element, Component (& scaffolding) design specs. to Engineering.
At this point they are in a defensive posture and are asking for deltas and every detail (dimensions, colors, strokes, states, behavior changes, etc.) about each element related to an as-built MVP.
What are others using these days to accomplish this form of communication ... other than heavily annotated screen shots and spreadsheet with 17 columns per element? I've considered Axure, but my source files are in Fireworks. Plus, I think I'd end up just writing out a long list of notes for each object anyway. We are in the middle of creating an online pattern library... I guess I was hoping we wouldn't need to document 5 states of every pixel in every element there, but maybe I should. Just thinking out loud.
