Adobe commissioned me to produce a series of 25 videos that explain the integration available within the Adobe Technical Communication Suite (2015 Release). The videos explain how other Adobe applications like Captivate, Photoshop, and Illustrator integrate with FrameMaker and RoboHelp.  Other videos show how to quickly set up and format HTML5 and other digital output. Click below to get convenient access to all 25 of these videos.
