Hi,

Back in the Frame 8 days we had a combination of Windows shell scripting and FrameScript to detect updated .fm files in our Perforce versioning system, convert the new files to PDF, and upload them to Sharepoint for the outside world to consume.

In 2016, is this still the right plan? I've started looking at ExtendScript, but it seems to exist purely within FrameMaker. Is this an accurate observation? Should we stick with FrameScript?

Thanks,

Boone

If your FrameScript process worked with FrameMaker 8, there is no reason it shouldn't work with the latest versions. You will probably have to upgrade to the latest version of FrameScript, but the cost is certainly reasonable.
