EPUB, WebHelp, Adobe AIR®, EclipseHelp, and Oracle Help for Java™. And you can customize each output

example, create a task to output to PDF, WebHelp, and EPUB formats from a set of source documents and
then edit the task to create a task for other source types.

archive output files, especially when running regular builds so that subsequent builds do not overwrite

Adobe FrameMaker 10 software and its built-in import filters and XML support.

automatically create PDF bookmarks, and embed 3D views and rich content in PDF versions of your
documentation. Specify PDF settings directly in FrameMaker Server and customize different PDF settings

output saved to these repositories. FrameMaker Server also allows you to better manage passwords.

index markers, and footnotes. Use a context-sensitive styling language for sophisticated formatting.

making it easy for programmers to transfer their skills from one environment to the other. The clients
developed for FrameMaker software can be used as is in the FrameMaker Server 10 environment with
