Webinar Highlights

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.
