Hi and welcome to Adobe FrameMaker 10 Essential Training. I am David Rivers. This course is targeted to users who are new to FrameMaker in general, as well as those who may be new to Adobe's latest rendition of FrameMaker, version 10. Many of the new features in FrameMaker 10 are included in this course as well as tips and tricks for working in the most efficient manner possible. We'll begin with the basics, like touring the user interface and learning about guides, rulers, and templates, before we get into creating and exploring the various types of documentation one can create with FrameMaker.

Then it's on to more advanced topics that will familiarize you with the various components, content, and formatting of your projects. So with so many topics to cover, let's get started.
