ADVANCED UNSTRUCTURED FRAMEMAKER (Template Design)

Take the advanced FrameMaker course and expand your knowledge of FrameMaker. We teach you, among other things, how to use templates in a smart way; this to give your documentation a professional look-and-feel.

Who should attend?

The ADVANCED UNSTRUCTURED FRAMEMAKER training is intended for people who have to be able to design, manage and update FrameMaker books and templates.

Prerequisites

You need to have:

  • Hands-on experience with or a working knowledge of FrameMaker
    or
  • Attended the Unstructured FrameMaker Basics course

Training objectives

The Advanced FrameMaker training course covers the basics of template design. A key component of template design is the information model, for example DITA, because designing a template without an information model is like building a house without any construction drawings and specifications. Moreover, we also make sure that the template “works”: a professionally designed template should look nice, but it should also guide the author in the structure (“guided authoring”).
We also show you examples of how you can use Unstructured FrameMaker for single-sourcing purposes.
