Critical Microcontent

In today’s digital environment, the strategic creation and delivery of microcontent are increasingly critical to optimizing technical communication.

RoboHelp meets this end by creating and deploying content snippets into Adobe’s Chatbot, Search Snippet, FAQ, and Microhelp platforms, which help direct content audience traffic and engage users. Click here to learn about what’s new in RoboHelp.

The 2020 edition of FrameMaker includes the “Split a document” utility that imports Microsoft Word files and splits them into a book with small chapters. Its LwDITA feature includes simplified keyspace management and an updated DITA Open Toolkit - the open-source, Java-based toolset that converts content into deliverable formats.
