FrameMaker 2019 training for technical authors
About the course

Increase your productivity and publish across platforms and devices with Adobe® FrameMaker® 2019 Release in classic mode.

This is a two-day introductory course designed for new users of Adobe FrameMaker, who want to single-source technical documentation to create and publish information on different formats and devices.

What you’ll learn

You’ll learn the theory behind using an authoring tool to organise and publish your content and receive practical training in how to create ‘nimble’ content that can be re-used in multiple products and viewed across multiple channels.

Specifically, you’ll explore how FrameMaker (2019 Release) can make your workflow more productive: how to set up a personalised workspace; add, style and format content; and publish multiple types of outputs. You’ll discover how to incorporate added functionality, such as cross-references, tables and graphics, and how to use ready-made, customisable templates that make setting up and creating your content quick and easy.

How you learn

This Adobe FrameMaker training course includes live classroom training, either on-site at your location, or online via Adobe® Connect™. The course includes live demonstrations, explanations and activities to help you use FrameMaker as you learn.

You’ll also receive course materials that you can reference during the two-day training. These learning materials are yours to keep and refer to after you’ve completed the course.

Course overview

This is a two-day introductory course aimed at first-time users of Adobe FrameMaker. It is suitable for technical writers, techcomm professionals, digital content strategists and multichannel content marketers, e-publishing authors or anyone interested in getting to grips with this latest release of digital publishing software.

Day 1: Create and edit content using FrameMaker

We’ll discuss how FrameMaker answers technical documentation challenges, such as variant management, reuse of content and adapting content to different devices.

After discovering the standard user interface, you will learn to create content, apply styles, and insert typical document components (tables, graphics, links) and other elements (video, 3D, QR codes).

We will look at how you can organise your content in FrameMaker to enable maximise reuse and to allow multiple authors to create content.

Day 2: Organise content for multichannel documentation

Now we start to focus on how you can deploy the document organisation learned in day 1: how to create a book; add and format a table of contents and an index; create conditions to manage variants; how to reuse content with text insets.

We’ll look at the basics of page layout, how to apply a master page and add new templates. You will then learn to publish a document in different formats, using predefined settings and creating different versions of the same document using the same source.
