  • A quick overview of roundpeg with respect to Adobe TCS3:Along with Creative suite and dev techs like CF, Flex, we train in FM RH Captivate and TCS integrationWe provide services large and small, from template review and revision to full content conversion and single source output systems.
  • Transcript

    • 1. Creating ePub &Apps with Adobe TCS3
      Matt Sullivan
      roundpeg director of training
    • 2. Determine where you will create content
      I generally choose FrameMaker
    • 3. Our example files
      Content in a FrameMaker Book
      Easy formatting and organization of contentvia template-based workflow
      FM Book linked into RoboHelp project
      Allows definition of all formats, paths, outputs
    • 4. Mappings are already completed
      For linking details, see
    • 5. Demo of setup and process
    • 6. Producing ePub from FM
      Allows quick testing
      Select File > Publish to access the ePub Publish Settings
      Output location
      The linked RH project
      .isf mapping file
      Location of 7zip for compression of output
    • 7. Why FrameMaker?
      allows the greatest range of print and PDF output
      easy ePub output, and integration with RoboHelp for other online formats
    • 8. When to author in RoboHelp?
      Full control of online formats is critical
      Primary output is Help, not print
      Customization of HTML is required
    • 9. RoboHelp Single Source Layouts are in place for:
      XML Output (required by FM to generate ePub output)
      WebHelp (for quick testing)
    • 10. You actually mentioned MS Word…
      FrameMaker and RoboHelp allow importing or linking of MS Word content
      Importing=content to manage within RoboHelp
      Linking=content to be managed by SME’s
    • 11. FrameMaker Best Practices (not exclusive to linked projects!!)
      Consistent and rigid style usage
      Enforce template usage across docu team
      Ensure book and chapter files open without “missing resource” messages
      Ensure book file updates without Book Error Log messages
      Save early, save often!
    • 12. Generate final ePub with RoboHelp
      Select File > Generate > ePub Output…
      If not present, select Tools > Scripts > ePub
      To reset toolbar, right-click on menu bar, choose Customize, then choose Reset
      Cover will be the first page in FrameMaker file
      Cover image may not show in Adobe Digital Editions
    • 13. ePub Details (RH)
      RoboHelp used the XML Output to process ePub
      Select the appropriate TOC from within the XML Output SSL
    • 14. Transferring to iPad
      Apple AppStore
      Register with Apple
      Apple Bookstore
    • 15. Transferring to Android
      Via USB
      Android Marketplace
    • 16. Transferring to Kindle
    • 17. Linked Projects
      Recorded seminars available at
      the Adobe booth (bring a flash drive, 100-200 Mb each reorganized, email for specific path)
    • 18. Linking best practices
      ID TOC
    • 19. When working with linked content
      Format options differ between print and online formats
      Content maps according to project settings
      “Odd” representations of Frame content will create challenging formatting issues in other deliverables
      HTML in RH containing FM_ is likely unmapped and will not be controllable in RH
    • 20. CSS for online formats
      RHStylemapping.css is the default, but easily changed in File >Project Settings
      An additional .css will be created by FrameMaker to address mapping omissions
      Do not try to edit the generated .css
      Do not change the .css mappings for linked content inside of the RoboHelp project
    • 21. News Flash: RoboHelp 9.01
      Announced May 7, 2011an update to RH 9 is available via the RoboHelp 9 Help menu, or at
      Also, CS 5.5 released to address delivery to mobile devices
    • 22. RoboHelp: Things to watch for
      Spaces in project names and paths
      Renaming of projects
      Renaming of linked files and TOC’s
    • 23. RoboHelp Best Practice (FM users)
      If your linked project seems properly configured, but does not output correctly, start with a fresh RH project. The extra 10 minutes spent relinking will likely result in a working output.
