From Paper to Pixels: Publish to ePub Formats with Just FrameMaker 12
Thursday, May 15th
It seems that our output/deliverable requirements in tech comm publishing multiply almost monthly. Tablets and mobile devices are critical, but PDF isn’t going away anytime soon; it is often a government or regulatory requirement. Fortunately, one publishing tool enables you to have highly complex, “traditional” PDF, while also enabling you to output to HTML5 responsive layout to conform to virtually any device screen. Move beyond the limitations of PDF from Word and future-proof your content by being able to publish “anytime, anywhere.”
This presentation includes a lively demonstration of brand new FrameMaker 12 and highlights the following features:
Output to HTML5 responsive layout, EPUB, KINDLE, WebHelp, and Microsoft HTML Help without assistance.See how online published output differs from traditionally formatted PDF from the same source files.Output multiple versions from one set of source files:Publish to print with QR codes.Publish to PDF with hyperlinks to URLs.Publish to EPUB and HTML5 responsive layout with video.A highly improved PDF review cycle.Compatibility with Dropbox.The ability to restore last work session with multiple documents (and last page location).Significant user interface improvements.
FrameMaker has long been acclaimed as a full-fledged XML and DITA authoring solution. Discover our newest product: FrameMaker XML Author 12, which only edits and authors XML. This end-to-end XML solution is less than half the cost of a full FrameMaker license and is even compatible with DITA OT. Discover how you can integrate this into a full FrameMaker workflow, or work alone and output via DITA OT.
