Sharing resources with TCS5

FrameMaker 12 and RoboHelp 11 take advantage of nifty cloud and mobile device options which greatly enhance collaboration and review tools.

My Adobe webinar on 11/6/2014 covered these options, and the recording is available at

In the webinar I discussed:

FrameMaker 12 Dropbox functionality

  • Setting up Dropbox integration
    • Enabling folder structure for uploaded projects
  • Saving a project with dependencies to Dropbox
  • Showing Dropbox Sharing options in FrameMaker
  • FrameMaker 12 PDF review
    • Creating a tagged PDF
    • Enabling Reader for review
    • Transferring PDF  for reviewers, including mobile via Dropbox, email, and AirDrop
    • Importing comments, using the tracking bar

Discussion of accessing Dropbox on mobile (iPhone with iOS8)

  • In Dropbox on my iPhone, I need to click on the PDF, then choose Preview > Share> Open in> Adobe Reader
    (Really?! Dropbox: you couldn’t see this one coming?)

RoboHelp 11

  • Setting up Dropbox, et. al.
  • Using Dropbox graphics in topics
  • Pushing topics to Dropbox for sharing
