Just4You #1: Why FrameMaker matters for Word Users

In the first session of “Just 4 You” select demonstrations, Adobe Product Evangelist, Maxwell Hoffmann, takes you through key highlights of FrameMaker that are of particular interest to users of Microsoft Word, or potential users who are unfamiliar with FrameMaker’s power.

This combination of slides and live demos focuses on use of FrameMaker for “regular” or unstructured documents, although there is a brief demo of XML authoring at the end of the presentation.
