Wednesday

Advanced Training 210:30 - 11:30

Right on Target: Advanced or Just Unfamiliar Features in the Target Editor

The Target Editor is feature-packed, with 14 different tabs full of options. Like many MadCap Flare authors, you may have ignored many of those options in the rush to get your projects out the door but, in doing so, you also may have missed opportunities to improve your projects or solve odd problems. In this workshop, we’ll look at many of those options, such as the master stylesheet, the output file name option and how it can cause a common mistake, the skin and component default skins options, relationship tables, the project management benefits and risks of the Warnings tab, and more. You’ll be able to test a few features in real time by working on a little demo project, and will leave with a good feel for those mysterious and unfamiliar features.
