Customizable Basic HTML5 output
Bidirectional language support
Enjoy support for right-to-left(RTL) languages - Arabic, Hebrew, and Farsi. Work with RTL and left-to-right (LTR) content in the same paragraph, document or book. Reduce DTP work with the new direction property. Set up the document and flip it - all inherited objects will also change direction.
Personalization with Dynamic Content Filters
Give end users a more personalized content experience with improved Dynamic Content Filters that now support indexes. Users can select appropriate filters to view relevant content.
Content personalization for DITA content
Now directly use DITA attributes for content as criteria in Dynamic Content Filters, making it even easier to create personalized content experiences for your end users.
Share projects easily with colleagues, subject matter experts, and translators. Create a self-contained package of your documents, books or DITA maps. The packager includes all dependent files, such as referenced files and images and configuration files.
Integration with CMSs
Leverage built-in connectors to industry leading CMSs like Adobe Experience Manager, EMC Documentum, Microsoft SharePoint, and DitaExchange. Use the Repository view to check-out files, manage dependencies, manage versions, and perform searches even with custom metadata. Get a set of APIs to connect your enterprise authoring environment with virtually any CMS.
Improved support for inline MathML equations
Easily create inline MathML equations within FrameMaker (2017 release) thanks to native integration with MathFlow Structure and Style editors from Design Science. Equations inherit paragraph properties, such as fonts and background color, and are now exported as high-quality vector graphics in the published output.
Simplified XML authoring
Now subject matter experts and casual authors can create valid XML, without worrying about XML complexities. Work faster with a simplified user interface, a form-like easy-to-fill authoring experience, and the ability to insert objects easily using Quick Element toolbar or by importing from other sources such as Word and HTML pages, even for DITA 1.3 documents.
Effortlessly publish to Adobe Experience Manager
Easily publish DITA content to Adobe Experience Manager Sites from FrameMaker by using XML Documentation Add-on for Adobe Experience Manager.
Greater content accessibility with 508 compliance
Now accommodate your users’ special needs by generating HTML5 layouts that meet 508 compliance, making content compatible with assistive technologies.
Add Favorites within new Responsive HTML5 layouts
Provide users the option to mark topics as favorites within the new Responsive HTML5 layouts, saving them time and effort when accessing content again.
Author structured content faster. Convert content to a structured format with Smart paste. Easily bring in a variety of content, including paragraphs, tables, and lists, from a variety of sources, such as Microsoft Word and Excel and HTML web pages. Note: This feature is included for DITA, but you can also build it for other XML schemas.
Simultaneous PDF-based reviews and authoring
Work more productively by authoring and reviewing in parallel. Review comments are imported correctly in the modified document when the commented content is unchanged in the source document.
