  • Now deliver your content to multiple channels, formats, and screens, from within FrameMaker 12, without having to purchase any other product. Publish to popular output formats like EPUB 3, KF8, MOBI, WebHelp, CHM, and HTML5 with a single click. Define settings once and share them organization-wide. Simultaneously batch-process multiple outputs.
  • Create or edit MathML equations within FrameMaker 12 thanks to native integration with MathFlow™ Structure and Style editors from Design Science. Import a MathML equation  into FrameMaker, as an image, auto-size it, and save its source in the XML file. Render all documents including XML, with embedded MathML equations.
  • Manage content effectively using new native integration with Adobe Experience Manager, formerly known as Adobe CQ. Check out, check in, upload, copy, move, and create files. Get digital asset management metadata support, see version history, show dependents, and more. Customize Adobe Experience Manager by changing preferences.
  • Customize the user interface to match the way you work. Configure it with icons of your choice—large or regular sized, colored or greyscale.  Use floating toolbars and control bars, dock your most frequently used dialog boxes for quick access, and create workspaces customized to your workflow.
  • Work more productively by conducting authoring and reviewing in parallel. Edit the source content without waiting for all review comments to come in. Review comments are imported correctly in the modified document as long as the commented content has not changed in the source document.
  • Change the way you insert elements of various catalogs such as element, paragraph, and character catalogs. Bring up the new dialog box with a keyboard shortcut. See content even for large catalogs with 10 elements displayed at a time. Search for an element directly, or view a dynamic list of elements based on the filter criteria or context.
  • Work anytime, anywhere, on any machine, and with collaborators across networks. Choose whether to upload dependent files  or not. Share documentation easily with subject matter experts and other reviewers, and keep documents automatically updated with review comments.
  • Effortlessly use conditional tags for single-sourcing content with an improved, user-friendly Conditional Text Pod. Easily apply or remove multiple conditions. Utilize visual checkmarks to apply conditions or see which conditions have been applied.
