August 9, 2011 | By Matt Sullivan

Recently I responded to a post on the LinkedIn Friends of FrameMaker group. The poster was inquiring on the state of the integration between RoboHelp and FrameMaker. Here’s the relevant part of that post:

Finding and fixing paragraph overrides in FrameMaker 10

Locating overrides

While teaching a FrameMaker 10 class today, I was reminded that the Find/Change feature now includes the option to search for Paragraph Character and Table format overrides. This is a great way to identify inconsistencies in your document’s formatting.The option to search for overrides is new to FrameMaker 10, but for those of you not yet using FrameMaker 10, you can still easily remove formatting inconsistencies in any version of FrameMaker (or at least back to Frame 5.0!)

Custom Bullets in Frame to RoboHelp Projects
August 9, 2011 | By Matt Sullivan
Mapping bullets from FrameMaker to RoboHelp via TCS

Thanks to Peter Grainge for pointing me toward an Adobe Forum post recently.

Like many, the user was having difficulty matching the RH formatting that they were so happy with in FM.

As I’ve said many times, RH maps content, not formatting. To get specific formatting in HTML, you will likely need to have some css knowledge and a little patience. CSS takes practice. Formatting for linked projects is a specific skill, just like css formatting for mass email, or for cross browser and cross format compatibility.
