Forums

Knowing how to use FrameMaker or Flare forums is an important part of being a competent user. You just cannot know everything about the product. In this quick unit, you go to one of the forums and either post a legitimate question or search the forum for a question (preferably the latter). Summarize your findings in a post to our Open Forum.

Note: Occasionally, a forum is down for extended periods of time. If you cannot post a question, no problem. Also, if you cannot think of a pertinent question, don't post something just to be posting. In your post, just describe what you found in your search.

To get credit for this assignnment, post a summary of your finding to our Open Forum describing what you searched for and what you found out (and, optionally, what you posted and what you found out from that). If you have any tips on using a specific forum, add that too.

Adobe Forums to Search

Adobe FrameMaker Forum. Choose FrameMaker General Discussion. You may need to set up a login to see answers.

FrameMaker Users Group. Search here for FrameMaker user groups and forums. Other Yahoo groups for FrameMaker also available.

Please don't abuse the forums with useless questions. Best approach is to search the forum for something you know how to do, such as creating an em dash. Of course, that question is so basic, it may not be in the forum at all. However, you will see some interesting things related to em dashes.

MadCap Forums to Search

MadCap Software Forums. Choose General Discussion or Printed Documentation Targets. You may need to set up a login to see answers.

Austin MadCap Flare forum. Austin based! Other Yahoo groups for Flare also available.
