For the time being, I'll assume that everything I'm unhappy with is my fault :-} but when I start from a FrameMaker book and generate Responsive HTML5 there are quite a few things that have me raising my eyebrows in surprise. Can someone recommend an online walkthrough/tutorial/introduction?

There's a number of older posts on the TCS integration out there on the Adobe TCS blog and with Matt Sullivan's TechCommTools blog. Have you not done this (FM to RH) in the past? Are you linking or importing your FM content? Have you tried publishing directly out of FM?

Hi FieryPantone,

I've always wondered, which color swatch is Fiery, anyway...

Getting back to your post, though, what's your need for using RoboHelp in publishing your Fm content?

I do my online pub of Fm books via Fm directly. I don't know of any specific advantages to running it through Rh, unless you're combining the Fm content to existing Rh content.

Of course, if you're porting the content and no longer plan on editing in Fm, that would change the story, but in that case, it's only a one-off, and likely faster to just grind through the oddities than to address the inconsistencies that crop up with any conversion*

 

*By inconsistencies, I mean ad hoc formatting, such as "faking" a heading or numbered list without applying a style, 

 

-Matt

While not a review of the Fm to Rh workflow, there's a brief review of the direct Fm process in my free Intro to FrameMaker course at https://techcomm.tools/fm2019intro

@Matt - the only reason I've heard of not going direct from FM is the new frameless skin that the New UI sports in its grab-bag of layouts that FM doesn't have (yet).

Which skin is that? Since my dev is usually just customization of the Charcoal, I hadn't noticed any in the current release of Rh that were not in Fm.

The new "frameless" ones introduced back in Update 8? See https://blogs.adobe.com/techcomm/2019/07/robohelp-2019-update-8.html

@Jeff – no, never tried this before; as to linking vs importing I don't actually know; yes, I'm trying to compare HTML5 from FM with HTML5 from RH … so generally coming up with too many questions at once :-}

Setup for direct Fm output v. importing/linking to Rh is about the same.

HTML from Fm and Rh are about the same

Time to update imported/linked projects in Rh is a deal breaker for me.
