FrameMaker 6 solutions and best practices for the user who wants to make the most of FrameMaker's features. The only book available to help intermediate to advanced users improve their FrameMaker skills. Straightforward and practical in its approach, this book helps its readers out of difficult spots and teaches them to leverage the full capabilities of the software. Lisa Jahred has extensive experience with the ways the program meets and fails users requirements. A member of the Los Angeles FrameMaker User Group Board of Directors from 1994-1996, a power user since 1991, and a technical documentation creator for numerous national and international companies. This book discusses holistic approaches that save time, solve problems globally, and make creative uses of FrameMaker's features. Since FrameMaker is intended for large document creation, this approach is advantageous, even critical. Through real-world scenarios, the book explores typical tasks technical document creators perform daily. Each chapter provides principles and techniques needed to perform each task, along with tips on best practices and how to achieve repeatable outcomes. Rather than covering everything about the software, the book focuses on the challenges FrameMaker users face, helping them apply efficient, innovative solutions. An Adobe Certified FrameMaker expert, Lisa Jahred has been a FrameMaker power user since 1991. She has developed and conducted customized FrameMaker training to corporate clientele, carried out multi-language publishing projects nationally and internationally, developed hundreds of FrameMaker templates for various companies, and created interior book designs and templates for technical and creative nonfiction titles. Her clients include Epson, Martin Marietta, Apria Healthcare, HealthNet, AirTouch Cellular International, IRS, TRW, Qlogic Corporation, and leading book publishers. A member of the Los Angeles FrameMaker User Group Board of Directors from 1994-1996, she worked closely with Frame Technology Corporation (original developer of FrameMaker) to establish the FrameMaker User Group in the Los Angeles area.
