My Top 20 Favorite MadCap Software Features: Things I Use Every Day and Can’t Live Without

Everyone who uses MadCap Software’s products for a while eventually discovers and comes to rely on certain features the most in their everyday work life. In this session, I will count down my top 20 favorite features, not just in Flare, but in other MadCap Software products such as Central and Capture as well. Big features, little features. Older features, newer features. Whether you’ve been using MadCap products for years or you’re new to the community, my goal is that everyone will be able to pick up some valuable information in this session.
