Getting Started With MadCap Flare, Part 5: Generating Print Output

Oct 22, 8:00-9:00 am (Pacific Time) Online Webinar
Presenter: Neil Perlin, Certified Flare Trainer and Consultant | Hyper/Word Services

Are you new to MadCap Flare? Do you need help getting started with the rich set of features and functionality that comes with Flare? Are you new to authoring concepts and terminology?

Originally a four-part series from certified trainer and consultant Neil Perlin of Hyper/Word Services, this session will take a look at the basic steps and features involved in generating print targets in MadCap Flare.

We’ll take a look at:

  • Basic print output, using PDF as an example
  • Controlling formatting for print output using a CSS print medium
  • Controlling table formatting for print output using a table stylesheet print medium
  • Creating a basic page layout
  • Adding page layout types to get different headers and footers on different types of pages
  • Automatically generating a table of contents, index, and glossary for print output
  • How Flare handles the unusual link types – popup, dropdown, expanding, and toggler – when converting to print
  • Why you should use cross-references rather than hyperlinks in order to get automatic page numbering in print
  • And, time permitting, much more…

By the end of this series, you’ll have strong understanding of the concepts critical for success and a strong understanding of the key features and functionality of MadCap Flare.

Leveraging CSS & HTML5 to Enhance Your MadCap Flare Output: Part 1

Oct 27, 8:00-9:00 am (Pacific Time) Online Webinar
Presenter: Mike Kelley, Senior Information Developer | inContact

Understanding the basics of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and HTML5 is key to understanding the full power and flexibility of MadCap Flare.

CSS – the style sheet language used for describing the look and formatting of a document written in a markup language – is an essential skill for professional technical writers, content managers and web developers. A comprehensive understanding not only helps you as a MadCap Flare user, but is valuable for anyone working in a HTML or XML-based authoring environment.

Designed for beginning users, this webinar will improve your understanding of CSS from a tool-agnostic standpoint. By the end of this two-part series, you will have an intermediate understanding of CSS features like selectors, complex selectors, properties, inheritance, box model, positioning, floats, and more. We will also learn how to improve your own knowledge and skill with various free resources and tools.

Join Mike Kelley, Senior Information Developer at inContact, for a webinar series content developers and Flare users alike will find extremely valuable.
