Charlie, I and my colleagues can recommend Matt highly. He came to HDS and taught us how to use the TCS in just two days. He did a great job.

I'm following the instructions from RJ Jacquez demo at https://admin.adobe.acrobat.com/_a295153/p13101233/ This seems to be the only source of information from Adobe on how to do this. I'm importing the book by reference into an existing RH7 project and then going thru a reiterative process to fine tune stuff like style maps and xref styles. I was completely baffled by how get the FM TOC and Index associated with the Help project. As I was writing this email, I remembered a presentation by Kevin Siegal that I downloaded from the STC 2008 Conference web site. In there, I just found out that the TOC and Index have to be assigned to a RH layout. Caution! Small Digression: This process is reminding me of when I used to try to play Dungeons and Dragons from a VAX command line prompt. This was BI (Before Internet) when we had more time for such things and Games weren't part of the GNP :-) Does anyone know of a source for some information about hooking up FM8 books to RH7?

Along with the 4 apps is extra integration beyond HTM or Help outputs. Put Flash movies & simulations along with working 3D models into FM and output to the needed PDF or Help format. TCS 1.x is a bit finicky in setup and can have a 5-10 hour learning curve on the first project, but has a huge return on investment after setup. Currently there are only a few folks who can help with support outside Adobe. If you need help, let me know. If anyone else out there is working at a high level in this, let me (& Adobe) know and we can trade notes. -Matt Sullivan _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to Framers as dgcaller at earthlink.net.
