Just need help to activate Publish option in FrameMaker 11. How to activate this option? Please mention if I need to install some plug-in for the same.

This is the screenshot for the same as you can see the 'Publish' option is grayed out.

Sorry about that - I just checked my copy of FM11's help - on this page - Adobe FrameMaker 11 * Publishing the current document  - it mentions that the "Publish" option is only there if you've got the Tech Comm Suite.

What's the full version of Fm you're using?

For reference, I get the following from Help > About FrameMaker

I don't believe that Fm 11 had a Publish pod, but it did have a connection to Fm Publish Server.
Could that explain what you're seeing?

vpratap.tw​ - check your version of FM11 - there might have been a patch that fixed up access to that Publish pod. I'd check for you, but I just got a new workstation & having got all my versions of TCS installed yet.

Thanks for your reply. As of now, I don't have TCS installed as per our company guidelines we can only use Frame Maker.

I am not aware of patches if any. Please check the version I posted here.

Use the Help>Updates command to download the latest Fm11 patch files. If that doesn't work, see Adobe - FrameMaker : For Windows
