10 May: Working with Templates and Formatting Content
Creating a new doc with Adobe FrameMaker (2015 Release) is as easy as baking a cake. But why start from scratch? You’ll learn to use FrameMaker recipes to quickly create docs that are already beautiful and functional, if not tasty. Just add content and formatting, and publish. You can even tweak FrameMaker’s existing recipes and then save them as your own templates. Next time you create a new doc, open your own recipe, add content and formatting, and bake. Register here…

In fact, you can use the same source document that you’ve used to create PDFs and Web Help. You’ll learn how to turn your content into ebooks that can be read on all devices, how to make images in your ebooks responsive, and how to embed metadata without ever opening the HTML files. You just tell FrameMaker what you want, and FrameMaker does it all for you. Register here…

You don’t need to be a DITA expert to practice topic-based authoring. Learn the advantages of topic-based authoring and how it helps you create nimble content. With nimble content, you can mix and match topics to create new outputs, re-use content, and create conditional text that allows you to easily change content, depending on the publishing format. In this webinar you’ll learn how to accelerate your productivity with topic-based authoring using Adobe FrameMaker (2015 Release). Warning: This productivity tool may improve your ROI dramatically.
