Adobe's FrameMaker software has been the industry leader in technical publishing, with the release of version 8.0 continuing that tradition. FrameMaker 8 introduced Unicode, Flash, 3D and built-in DITA support.
FrameMaker 8.0 is the complete publishing system that provides all the tools needed for word processing, page design, graphics and book building. All this combined with a user friendly environment for preparing and authoring documents for storage in or output to valid structured FrameMaker documents. With support for both the Standard Generalised Markup Language (SGML) and the Extensible Markup Language (XML), this tool allows you to easily import, open and work with existing structured documents and then save them back to SGML or XML when you're finished.
Users can quickly and efficiently produce multiple output formats, including print, Portable Document Format (PDF), and several other online formats from complex documents.
This course has recently been redesigned to teach new users how to utilise FrameMaker to streamline their document creation process and greatly increase productivity and efficiency. Current users will be shown the many advanced features, including tips and techniques for version 8.0.
Who should attend?
