Adobe Technical Communications Suite group

December 17, 2008

Art Campbell, on the STC Lone Writers SIG, has created a Google Group for users of Adobe’s Technical Communications Suite. Here’s what he had to say:

Over the past few months, I’ve noticed an increasing number of emails on the FrameMaker lists that have to do with inter-program problems between members of Adobe’s Technical Communications Suite, such as Frame and RoboHelp, Frame and Acrobat, how to integrate Captivate movies and so on.

And Adobe decided not to set up user-to-user forums for TCS but route queries into its program-specific forums, so there isn’t a place on the Internet for users of the TCS.

So, http://groups.google.com/group/TCS-Users is now online. The idea is to concentrate on integration problems and Suite integration tools, but I’m sure that individual problems will also crop up. In any case, drop on by and sign up — you can be a charter member! And there’s still time to earn the honor of being the first person to make an actual posting.

For the geekily inclined, chartering as a Google Group means that a Google account is required to use the web interface. It also means that the archive problem experienced by many email lists is non-existent. And there’s also a file area available for member use, which can be useful to explain *exactly* what you mean.
