Now that we can publish content as WebHelp and HTML5 output in FrameMaker 2015, can we still link FM files in RH (in 2015)? I'm trying to publish my content as WebHelp using FrameMaker 2015 and I don't have a lot of control/options on the output as much as I do using RoboHelp. Is it better to do the FM to RH integration? If so, then does TCS 2015 allow linking FM files in RH?

Please advice.

Yes to linking if TCS present; no TCS, then only import of FM content into RH

In 2015 you don't need TCS license to link FM from RH. It is available with the RH only license too.

Really? First I’ve heard of that – so what’s the point of having TCS2015 then (other than the bundled cost savings of the component products)?

From the RoboHelp (2015 release) help file (online), the Importing FrameMaker documents section implies that one needs the full TCS product.

If you are using Adobe Technical Communication Suite, you can link FrameMaker documents to your RoboHelp projects. For more information, see Using FrameMakerwith RoboHelp

Thanks Eager and Jeff pointing it out. Documentation has been updated now to reflect it correctly.

For the OP, there are a couple of useful online seminar videos that demonstrate the FM-to-RH workflow.

  • Exploring TCS Integration Sess 2: FrameMaker > RoboHelp Integration
  • Explore TCS4: FrameMaker to RoboHelp to eBook… Oh My!
