Your tool recommendations: research & design documentation

Having recently moved back into a research and design management role, I'd like to ask the group for recommendations on how to easily manage design research and design documentation. 

To my knowledge there is no "one tool to rule them all." In the past I've typically cobbled together solutions from piece parts; e.g., Basecamp, Jira/Confluence, Lighthouse, etc. for requirements and design documentation; Pivotal Tracker or Jira for work item and issue tracking.

Formatting field labels and field values

Hello All,

I searched through the threads and did not find anything on the topic.

Our application, a web-based CRM, offers a number of reports. When designing
the report, I formatted the reports so that field labels appear smaller and
paler than values. The rationale: focus the attention of people to the data
not to the labels.

Some colleagues of mine strongly oppose this approach and want field labels
to be bold and the same font size as values, claiming that this is a
standard way of doing it.
