My Top 10 Favorite Adobe FrameMaker Keyboard Shortcuts

I have been using Adobe FrameMaker since it was introduced by Frame Technology and one thing I enjoy about it, is using keyboard shortcuts instead of the mouse whenever possible. In this recording, I’d like to share with you my top 10 favorite keyboard shortcuts of all time.

Click HERE to watch the recording of my top 10 favorite Adobe FrameMaker keyboard shortcuts
(duration: 00:36:40)
.

TIP:
I typically set my desktop resolution to 1024 x 768 for best recording
results, however because I was showing apps, which require high
resolution, you will notice some distortion in the demonstration part
of the recording. Something you may want to try is to click the
“Scroll” button at the bottom left of the Connect Pro window, which
will help you zoom in closer and follow the action around the
presenter’s mouse.  To the right is what the button looks like in all
Connect Pro recordings.

If you have your own favorite keyboard shortcuts, please share with my readers by leaving a comment.

Recording: PDF-based Reviews via FrameMaker, Acrobat Pro and Acrobat.com

Earlier this week (1/20/10) I hosted an exciting eSeminar entitled “PDF-based Documentation Reviews for Technical Communicators” and I would like to thank everyone who participated in the live event, and for those who weren’t able to make it, the recording is now available. tweetmeme_url = ‘http://blogs.adobe.com/rjacquez/2010/01/recording_pdf-based_documenati.html’;
tweetmeme_source = ‘rjacquez’;

Normally I present alone, but this time, since I was doing a demonstration which involved collaboration from Reviewers via Acrobat.com, I enlisted the help of John Daigle, Edward Martino and Lance Robert, who volunteered to play the role of Reviewers and for that I’d like to thank all three of them, they did a terrific job.

Hope you enjoy this recording and especially the demonstration piece with my three Reviewers.  If you already conduct reviews using this process, or begin doing so, please leave a comment and share your success, I’d love to hear from you.

If you missed PDF-based Documentation Reviews for Technical Communicators (duration: 00:54:36), or want to watch it again, heres’ the recording. Please use your Adobe ID to access the recording.

Audio: The audio portion for the eSeminar will be available via your computer speakers ONLY, through Voice over IP (VoIP) and thus no phone number is provided

Description: With over 90% of all computers connected to the Internet already having the free Adobe PDF Reader installed, conducting PDF-based Reviews of Technical Documentation is one of the most intuitive and cost-effective solutions in the market.

Join us for this live eSeminar and learn how Technical Communicators and Reviewers can leverage the ubiquity of the free Adobe PDF Reader for conducting PDF-based reviews of Technical Documentation. One of the most exciting and innovative new features in Adobe Technical Communication Suite 2 is the ability to initiate PDF-based Reviews from Adobe FrameMaker, and with the help and integration of Acrobat 9 Pro Extended and the free services of the Acrobat.com Cloud, the Suite now provides and end-to-end solution for initiating, distributing, reviewing and approving comments, which can be imported back into the source FrameMaker documents.

Even if you don’t use the tools in Adobe Technical Communication Suite 2, you should consider attending so that you can compare this functionality to your current review workflow and learn how Adobe is leading and innovating in this space.

Below is an illustration of the workflow we will cover during the eSeminar:
