Am intrigued by the claim you can now save .CHMs (HTML Help) natively from Frame 12. Most of the past year I have been faffing around in TechCommSuite 4, basically trying to so nothing more complicated than author in Frame and make a CHM out of it. I have not found it very easy or intuitive at all: basically RoboHelp breaks everything out of the box, and I've found it very arduous making everything just look the way it was in Frame in the first place! (Unless you choose settings to just have things "As Source", which I keep getting told I shouldn't do because it generates atrocious HTML).
If I can now do "Save As... CHM" and just tweak a few output settings (same way as I tweak a few Distiller job options for Save As ...PDF) that would be a lot less fuss! And there'd be no need to fork out for Tech Comm Suite 5 - so I could save the money and buy Illustrator instead ;) (Sorry, rent Illustrator instead ... :/ ) Regards, David Davis Technical Author Message: 2 Date: Wed, 15 Jan 2014 07:57:14 +0000 From: "Reng, Dr. Winfried" <wr...@tycoint.com> To: "email@example.com" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: FrameMaker 12 released Message-ID: <f0bb99a33bce0b4fbff4a6483fec6a800e96b...@003fch1mpn2-001.003f.mgd2.msft.net> Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8" Hi, FrameMaker 12 is released now.
