Agenda

With FrameMaker 11 you can go beyond using PDF to represent "paper in pixels." Distribute PDF to reviewers who do not require a SW license to make complex notes and annotations. Import reviewer feedback directly "in place" within FM source files. Also, master the simple steps required to publish dynamic graphics (e.g. exploded 3-D diagrams) that your users can manipulate in a guided or "free style" experience.

In this session, Bernard Aschwanden covers a desireable methodology for planning out a publishing project which will be covered across all 3-sessions of this series. In this episode you will see:

  • 3 ways to import content from MS Word and achieve desired formatting
  • Working with structured documents as well as Regular FrameMaker documents
  • A preview of dynamic 3D graphics output to PDF
  • How to accomplish document review via PDF, import comments "in place" into source FrameMaker documents
  • How to locate and manage markers
  • Importing a "video" SW simulation from Captivate
