Re: [Framers] [WTF ramemaker] Best Practices for HTML Online help

2019-05-18 Thread Art Campbell
So, based on Caroline's and Robert's info and contributions, and  thoughts
from everyone else, I'm going to reccommend that our starting point for a
coding spec be the Frame-to-RoboHelp workflow, with us, doc, retaining
control of the map file. TBD is how the coders would inform us / update
with new hooks on the code side.

Does that sound reasonable to y'all? After we do a couple projects, we will
revisit and tune.

Thank y'all for the help and suggestions so far!

To clarify a few points:

   - The application is a SaS, but more on the database reporting side of
   things than providing a service
   - Some dedicated workstations will be primary user's work stations, but
   we expect a good percentage of people 30-40% to be using phones. Possibly
   tablets, but less likely.
   - We have FM 17 and will be single source authoring.
   - We have Tech Comm Suite 17, so RoboHelp is available

[Framers] Best Practices for HTML Online help

2019-05-14 Thread Art Campbell
My company is developing a new browser-based software package that is
specced to include screen-level context sensitive help.

The coders haven't done this before and are asking for
help/assistance/advice on developing the coding standard for this and other
products going forward.

I'm thinking the basics are the basics -- a call in the program goes to a
mapping table that invokes the HTML help screen in a new tab/window or a
popup.

What I'm looking for feedback / ideas on are a good method to call Help
from the application (icon/keystroke/widget), and any Best Practices that
people are already using, either on the coding or information development
side.

Re: [Framers] Different page sizes in FM document

2019-03-28 Thread Art Campbell
Doug's right on the basics.

If you want to have the chapter content flow and "stick" to the designated
page format, you need to also create a unique tag to invoke the page using
a Unstructured Master Page Map table on a reference page.

[image: image.png]
After it's set up (maybe 20 minutes), you need to execute the Apply Master
Pages command to refresh the pagination either manually, or as part of your
book building process.

You can optionally lock pagination and freeze the doc with ESC F l k.

Re: [Framers] Best Method, Word 2013 to Frame 2019.

2019-03-11 Thread Art Campbell
The import usually isn't an issue because FM has improved the import
facility a lot; the reformatting to FM tags is usually the big thing.

Rick Quattro's RindChangeFormatsBatch is the best tag and style remapping
tool I've found -- highly recommended .

Th

[Framers] Last Mile problem...

2019-02-20 Thread Art Campbell
Trying to solve a "Last Mile" problem to get some doc into the right hands.

Company uses Agile for document control. To be officially released, a doc
needs to go through the approval process, which includes attaching a PDF to
the form(s).

Only people with the $14K license have access.

We're storing copies of the PDFs on an internal server and posting them to
a protected customer web site for distribution, but getting some pushback
from internal controls people that people downloading those posted copies
have no way of knowing if they are the latest official copies.

Has anyone figured out a way to link to a PDF within Agile from an external
source? Is it even possible?

And second question -- the company is thinking of switching to Windchill
for doc control. Would that simplify or eliminate the delivery problem at
all?

TIA

Was underwhelmed in 15, and haven't had to use them in 17. Particularly
using the odd styling tool, which sometimes worked.

But looking at HTML5 output and HTML help output just over the horizon.

Re: [Framers] File Info > Title information problem

And it's editable in 2017 as well, and was in the 2019 beta.

If you need to juggle this info frequently, I and John both use a nifty
script of Rick's that propagates all File Info fields ina book and in all
the book's component chapter files based on a static config file and/or the
contents of FM variables such as Book Title.

There's also a FrameScript or two out there, maybe one of Rick Quatro's,

Re: [Framers] Save As PDF doesn't work first time

2018-08-23 Thread Art Campbell
Don't entirely agree or disagree.

I was a beta '17 user, so I've been using it for several years on Win10
without any serious issues. Always thinking that whatever the current
version is, that's what many people are using so you see a high number of
questions and complaints about that.

Can't talk about '19.

You're checking the Generate PDF Data checkbox when you Print to the
Acrobat printer?

And you may want to point out to the IT staff that FM12 wasn't designed for
W10. Definitely consider an upgrade -- you're going to be three revs behind
the curve shortly. Antique software...

Historically, SaveAs PDF has been problematic.

Re: [Framers] Frame2017 slow on network??

2018-08-16 Thread Art Campbell
Yes, but it's likely two factors.

First, if you're working in a book and the component files have imported by
ref graphics, you're talking hundreds of files coming from the net to your
box.

Second, unless your company is atypical, each one of those files is
virus-checked both ways, as it comes on to your box from the net and leaves
your box to the server.

This adds up to a heavy network load. The server, the network, your NIC,
and the PC all have to be up to the task.

Best fix is to work locally and use the server for backup. Subversion or
source control is great. However, I don't have that option, so I store on
my local Dropbox folder (so I have my own cloud backup) and use Microsoft
SyncToy to sync up with the server a couple times a day.

[Framers] cTUVus documentation

2018-07-24 Thread Art Campbell
My company just got cTUVus certification for North America. My regulatory
guy is telling me we need to include French warning/caution/danger text as
well as include some French text translation in our doc set.

We have no Canadian customers, and none in the pipeline, so our doc would
not be exported to Canada, which has the bi-lingual/French requirement.

He was not able to answer the question I asked, if we could do two
versions, a US English and a translated French for shipment to Canadian
customers if and when it is required, and be in compliance with the
standard.

Anyone been there and solved the problem?

Thanks,
Art

Re: [Framers] Windows 10 updates disables FM printing

2018-05-29 Thread Art Campbell
An important point being left out is what flavor of Windows 10 is being
used. If it's Home... I'd walk away.

Pro or Enterprise are stable and have the support required.

Also given that the environment seems to be FM 10, sis or seven year old
software running in an environment for which it wasn't designed... your
mileage will always vary like this, and you should expect them.

If it was me and I wanted to hang onto a legacy environment, for some
reason, I'd do it on a separate machine off the Internet. And used a
business version of Windows 10 and the current or one step removed version
of FM for the serious work.

Re: [Framers] FrameMaker install without Distiller?

2018-05-04 Thread Art Campbell
Unless you want to mess with the innards, it's easiest and best just to
install FM with the defaults. You're more likely to F* up something trying
to second guess the installer and not install the Distiller than you are
following the KISS principle.

If Acrobat is set as your default printer, as it should be, it will be
used.

Just get in the habit of using the Print command.

Re: [Framers] old FM files

There used to be an undocumented Force Open command, but I don't remember

If you have or can install any older versions than '15, try opening the

Re: [Framers] Frame alone or Adobe too?

2018-04-16 Thread Art Campbell
Get the full version of Acrobat too.

TCS is the best way to go. Includes both and other tools that may be
useful, but which you don't know you need yet because it's a new gig.

[Framers] Looking for a Adobe vendor

2017-11-29 Thread Art Campbell
My client/employer has a rat's nest of Adobe TCS, Acrobat, and Photoshop
licenses set up on subscriptions. They are continually losing licensing
info, breaking after updates, etc.

Does anyone have a good Adobe vendor or VAR that can
​transition us into the
​C​
umulative Licensing Program (CLP)
​or the Transactional Licensing Program (TLP)? If so, contact info, please.


Thanks,
Art

Quick update:

​P
philippe
​ Zingoni on the TCS User's list was sure you could edit it from the
Variables list, so I tried again.

I played with it some more, and discovered there's a little "gotcha"
designed in.
You can't edit it (Table continuation) just by clicking the pencil icon in
the list like you can other variables.
First you have to insert it in a table title and highlight it. THEN you can
edit it!

[Framers] FrameMaker variable language

2017-10-31 Thread Art Campbell
May be a novice question for you guys who work in translation, but it's new
to me.

I'm updating an already translated-into-Spanish document with some new
screen shots (I don't speak Spanish, so I'm not messing with the text at
all). The problem is that the variables, like the Table Continuation, are
coming in as English instead of Spanish.

How can I get it to read "continuado" instead of "continued," hopefully
without messing up my installation too much?

Doesn't seem to make a difference. Both with this and your earlier

[Framers] Acrobat Review from FM bug/problem

2017-10-24 Thread Art Campbell
Current version of TCS, Frame, and Acrobat, all updates applied, running on
W10Pro.

Two of us are printing a book to Adobe Acrobat printer from Frame, adding a
Draft watermark to the PDF, and sending it to Shared Review on a wide open
shared network drive.

Recipients are opening in Reader and getting this error message:
[image: Inline image 1]

The message is false though, because the PDF hasn't been changed... unless
you count adding the watermark (our standard operating procedure -- it's
been working for a year or more.

Anyone else getting this or have any ideas?

Thanks,
Art

Yup, sure are. For all FM revs... Not seeing one for FM 17, although I only
went through a couple pages of results. Because I haven't IDed one that
works in 17 yet, hence the question -- hoping someone has a solution that
works.

[Framers] Can RoboHelp generate a PDF of a complete help system?

I know it wasn't capable of doing that in the past, but I'm curious if it
can now (the last release or two of TCS).

Re: [Framers] Save as PDF

2017-07-26 Thread Art Campbell
What John said, but seriously guys, this has been unreliable since it was
introduced in the first Adobe releases of what, FM 5? 6?

The Acrobat people obviously don't test with Frame, and the Frame people
apparently don't know about or test with new Acrobat builds...

Treating Acrobat as a logical printer and printing to it as you would a
physical printer removes a lot of the problematic middleware code that
breaks. It's only a few more keystrokes or clicks... just remove "Save As
PDF" from your world and go on with life.

Re: [Framers] Framemaker 2017 save backwards

2017-07-13 Thread Art Campbell
To follow the KISS principle:

   - If someone on '17 saves as either flavor of MIF, the file that is
   created is backward compatible with earlier revs.
   - All features not supported in the earlier revs are discarded.

So AFAIK, there is no reason to make your new employee jump through hoops
-- just do the Save as MIF when she needs to export something for a team
share.

If y'all do FrameScript, you could run up a script that works on files,
book contents, or directories to convert all FM 17 files to MIF like once a
day, at the end of the day and write the files to a subdirectory or other
location.

Re: [Framers] Is the FM '17 PreRelease area still functioning / being monitored?

2017-06-22 Thread Art Campbell
Because all functions seem to be working, it may be good either to disable
it temporarily and/or to post a notice on it.

Otherwise, people like me who see they can get in and post think that it's
intentional...

[Framers] [Frame] Kinda wonky '17 support for Dropbox

2017-06-16 Thread Art Campbell
When following the instructions for working on files in Dropbox from FM 17,
I'm getting a herd of temp files saved with numeric extensions, and errors
displaying that the file I'm working on can't be saved. Also that the file
was saved but image data (Frameimage maybe?) was lost.

Anyone else using this feature and getting it to work seamlessly?

TIA,
Art

[Framers] Text insets with mini-TOCs not updating

2017-06-07 Thread Art Campbell
OK, here's the setup, in '17:

   1. Some shared chapter files are in a \Shares directory parallel to the
   discrete book directories.
   2. Each shared chapter file has a mini-TOC showing its H1s.
   3. Each book has a container file for the shared chapter with unique
   page furniture, chapter number/head, and intro paragraph.
   4. Each shared file is set up to use the host file's formatting/settings.

The problem is that when the book is updated, the mini-TOCs aren't updated
with the host book's page numbers, so the mini-TOC might say the topic is
on page 3 when it's really on 187. Mini-TOCs are supposed to be updated
with a book is refreshed.

Any thoughts? Bug?

Thanks,
Art

Good pint, Rick. Any MIF should open in any legacy version and just dump
whatever isn't supported... And it wouldn't generate the warning because
all features would be supported.

Re: [Framers] Frame 15 UI annoyances

1. I'd use FrameScript to SaveAs MIF quietly to avoid the dialogs. Don't
know if there's a way to disable warnings in FM itself.

2. Check the ini file to see if the checkbox "took." I believe there's a
line in the ini that controls the auto-save setting.

OK, this may be semi-spam, but I just received a great FrameScript from
Rick Quatro and wanted to share.

It rips through either a book or file and removes any spaces from files
names, reference graphics, text insets, and other imported items.* Both in
the Frame file and in the source file.*

W
hich means that documents written with Windows or Mac file naming
conventions (or just sloppy file naming) HTML and UNIX compliant, a huge
deal for those of us using Frame to output to multiple formats including
HTML.

XSLT wouldn't be trivial but it's doable by mere mortals.

RTF, so that when your current setup stuff finally quits working, you'll be
able to open the files with whatever version you end up with. Protect your
work.

Cheers,
Art

Re: [Framers] Anyone have any spiffy FM resume templates?

2017-03-18 Thread Art Campbell
Guys, I'm not positive because I haven't tried it, but attachments may be
permitted on emails.

Craig and Lin, maybe try by posting the templates? Worst thing that would
happen is they'd bounce back to you and then we'd all know.

If you're using WordPress, WPEngine is the best. An install includes a
staging site for testing and development; daily and on-demand backups; and
when you need to, you always connect with a support person with root privs

Re: [Framers] Bullet different color from text

2016-09-08 Thread Art Campbell
   1. Define your bullet list para tag and set the color to black. Make
   sure it works by setting up the Numbering properties to generate the bullet
   you want.
   2. Create a Red character tag to set the color to red.
   3. Go back into the Para tag Numbering properties and put your new Red
   character tag in front of the bullet character. Put a 
   building block after it.
   4. Save and test.

Re: [Framers] OT: Adobe Tool Question

2016-09-08 Thread Art Campbell
Subscription is $10 a month for Photoshop (and Lightroom, if you need/want
it).
Seriously not a big deal and cheaper and more reliable than the regular
licenses, speaking after several year's experience as a beta and real user.

Re: [Framers] Can Frame 15 be used so I can eliminate ePublisher?

2016-08-29 Thread Art Campbell
I'm not, Pat -- Robert was referring to weirdness in the UI, but at this
point, I've been using it so long, I've forgotten the blips in changeover
-- this happened years ago.
The keyboard shortcuts I use weren't affected and are still there, so
YMMV

Re: [Framers] Can Frame 15 be used so I can eliminate ePublisher?

2016-08-28 Thread Art Campbell
Don't know what your settings are, but you can turn off most of the
weirdness.
I haven't found that any of the keyboard shortcuts I've been using for
years stopped working with 15.
Much more stable over all -- one of the writers on my team recently ran up
a 114 (or thereabouts) page table. Single table. Works just like it should.
Ain't likely to happen with earlier versions...

Re: [Framers] Can Frame 15 be used so I can eliminate ePublisher?

2016-08-25 Thread Art Campbell
I'm on 15, and have used both Publish and the latest Webworks with it.
Webworks wins pretty much hands down on quality of output, ability to tweak
and customize, and support.

If you hate RoboHelp, you'll really hate the Publish tool subset... it's
like the limited version of Distiller they ship with Frame. Just a taste,
with a lot of the important stuff cut out.

That said, if all you want to do is those four things you listed, then
Publish will probably work for you. But there may be some items you don't
know you want to tweak yet

[Framers] FM15 Publish Tool "logo" question

2016-08-18 Thread Art Campbell
Hi all!

In FM15, when you use the Publish tool to generate HTML5 for a book, by
default the "logo" icon in the frame points to the title page of the book.

Does anyone know of a way to change that to point to a different location,
a static URL that would be the site home page? It's not a setting available
in the interface.

Thanks,
Art

Re: [Framers] Find/change problems in large documents

2016-06-01 Thread Art Campbell
OK, if you've identified that it works on some machines and not on others,
another thing I'd check is the amount of free disk space and RAM, because
swapping a massive file like that sucks resources. And the amount of
resources available could vary from machine to machine.

I'd also download the 2015 eval version and test with that.

Re: [Framers] SVG blowing up Frame file size

2016-05-05 Thread Art Campbell
Another possibility is that SVG doesn't include a preview (I don't know --
format never interested me), but if so, FM may be creating one, which may
account for the size increase.

Might try saving the Visio as PNG and importing that to see what happens;
it's generally a great all purpose format.

I haven't encountered it, but crop and modify PDFs all the time in
Photoshop. I believe there's also a cropping tool in the full version of
Acrobat.

Re: [Framers] Frame-12-to-Responsive HTML5

2016-05-04 Thread Art Campbell
In 15, expanding text and dropdowns are controlled by the HTML5 Settings:
[image: Inline image 1]
Not sure if this is also present in 12 or not, but each seems to be based
on Para and Char tags created in FM, respectively.

Following up on this confirmation that there is a P1 bug in FM 2015 patch
3.0.3.1 that prevents TOCs from being generated, be aware that it was still
available from Adobe as part of the automatic updates as recently as Monday
