Linking and Importing MSWord Documents in RoboHelp 9

I just came back from this years STC 2011 in Sacromento, CA. What a great event this year. Everyone was so positive and looking for ways to incorporation multimedia in their documentation and output to tablets.

We had a great time demo’ing how you can import video into FrameMaker / RoboHelp and output to not just PDF, but E-Pub files for the IPad and other tablets. It’s a WOW feature.

The thing that suprised me was that so many people did not realize that you can import or link MSWord documents into RoboHelp. Not many people know you could singlesource MSWord content and publish through RoboHelp to produce E-Pub files for the IPad also. It really blew their mind when I showed them how to edit their MSWord content and then just open RoboHelp and generate Adobe AIR, WebHelp, HTMLHelp, EPub, JavaHelp …

FrameMaker 10 – Auto Insertion Of Multiple Child Elements “Video How To”

The goal of every good Structured FrameMaker Template Maker is to make developing documentation as easy and standard as possible for the Editor.

With frameMaker 10 you now have the ability to insert a full substructure of elements with the insertion of the parent element.

I wanted to give you a practical use case for this type of functionality. I also wanted to show you what is possible when you add creativity with new functions.

With this in mind, I have created a How To Video

Here are the files I created or modified for this exercise.

FrameMaker 10 – Creating And Applying Custom Master Pages, A “How To Video”

FrameMaker is extremely power and a great time saver.

The basic premiss is that one person creates a template (be it Unstructured or Structured) and that individual can use it. Now if a group decides to standardize by using it, that is where the most efficiencies are gained. The more work you put into the template to make it easier to use, the more productivity increases.

With that in mind, I want to show you how easy it is to create templates in FrameMaker.
