Single Sourcing to the Max with MadCap Flare

New to Flare? Need to publish content to multiple devices, formats, or audiences? Flare’s single sourcing features are tremendously flexible and powerful but they can also be overwhelming. Which ones should you use? When? Can you combine them? How do you avoid overdoing it? Come to this half-day, hands-on workshop for answers AND hands-on practice. We’ll look at:
• Two definitions of single sourcing.
• The three main single sourcing features – variables (everywhere!), snippets, and conditions.
• Supporting features like CSS mediums, conditionalizable styles, responsive output, and parent/child project structures.
• How the Target Editor ties the settings together.
• Best practices for single sourcing with Flare

You’ll leave with a solid overview of Flare’s single sourcing features and how to use them to create cutting edge outputs.

  • Bring a laptop with a mouse and your power cord.
  • Have a licensed copy or a trial copy of Flare 12 or above. (If you want to use a trial copy, download and install it less than 15 days before the workshop. Note that the trial copy misspells words at random until you enter the key. It's terrifying but harmless.)
  • Make sure your laptop has a USB port.
