Adobe FrameMaker software is a powerful authoring and publishing solution for technical communicators. Take advantage of an intuitive user interface, unified workflows, and a template-based authoring environment to simplify content delivery and conform to organizational requirements for consistency and branding. It is a template-based authoring and publishing solution for unstructured, structured and XML/DITA content. Easily author content with an enhanced user interface and standards-compliant tools, collaborate and review with out-of-the-box content management system (CMS) integration, and automatically schedule and publish via Adobe FrameMaker Server software to multiple channels such as PDF, HTML, WebHelp, Adobe Air, Adobe FlashHelp, and Oracle Help.
New, intuitive user interface
Work more efficiently thanks to a completely redesigned user experience. Use floating toolbars and control bars, dock your most frequently used dialog boxes for quick access, and create workspaces customized to your workflow.
Fully integrated authoring environment
Create, edit, and publish technical content with powerful features for automatic numbering, cross-referencing, creating tables of contents, indexes, books, and more. Automate formatting via templates, and easily integrate tables, graphs, and images.
Powerful, scalable single sourcing
Effortlessly single source variations of the same document for different channels and purposes. Build and use complex Boolean expressions to define output filters in topic-based, structured, and unstructured modes.
Filtering by attribute
Take advantage of support for multivalued attributes and the ability to import expressions from one document to another.
Automation through scripting
Easily automate time-consuming, repetitive tasks through advanced scripting support with Adobe ExtendScript. Run scripts for simple tasks from within Adobe FrameMaker or through the ExtendScript Toolkit to eliminate manual effort and increase productivity.
Formats and format overrides
Manage formats for paragraphs, characters, and tables from the existing catalog or create custom lists to be displayed. You can also create new formats and delete or override those that are unused or not useful.
Enhanced attribute editor
Define and edit attributes for declarations in markup to perform multiple functions: record the status of content within elements, allow cross-referencing between elements, or specify how to format an element.
Enhanced tag view
Easily view all elements in a collapsible format, even in document view; hide or collapse parent and child elements individually or simultaneously; and search through and open elements, including those that are collapsed.
Text drag and drop and background color
Drag text, elements, and rows and columns from tables and drop them into new documents or applications to save time. Use the Background Color feature to emphasize and highlight important sections of text by adding color to the background, whether for sections of text or paragraphs.
Enhanced importing of comments from PDF files
Import comments with type highlights retained from PDF files into Adobe FrameMaker 10 with the Text Background Color feature.
Rich media object incorporation
Create compelling online content by incorporating 3D models, rich Adobe Flash Player compatible animations and simulations created with Adobe Captivate software. Generate PDF files with live 3D models.
