I am writing some documentation for a piece of software and I am struggling on what pronouns to use.
I didn't want to use gender related pronouns as my subject is the user so I used they/their, but it doesn't feel right hence my question to clarify how common technical documents are written regarding pronouns. Usually I write something like
The user can press that button if they want to have their needs met.
Is it a normal way to write?
Another way to solve this problem would just be to use the plural users but it's not the ideal solution either.
I am not interested in the gender talk here, however I think it is important to note that technical documentation is for everyone and even people who may not agree with this conversation, hence I am looking for the common way technical documentation is written as well as the general grammatically correct way.
There is a similar conversation about general pronouns but here I want to be specific to technical documentation and the common usage of the user + the user's pronouns in a technical environment.
