When I read all your postings, I am always concerned with how very much I
have to learn.
I want to take the FrameMaker A.C.E. exam late 2002. I've practically
forgotten the advanced features and necessary workarounds you know when you
use Word frequently. I do know ForeHelp; I'm determined to find the time
somehow at home to learn RoboHelp better (we don't use it here). I just got
Photoshop 6 (give thanks!). Someone directed me to a free course on Barnes &
Noble university. I need to pick up some Access because we use it somewhat.
PDFs (better thanks to you all).
Technical Writer know-how to's
I've forgotten my HTML pretty much. What about CSSs? What about XML? Single
sourcing? graphics & design - doing better thanks to this list, and classes
are planned.
Things to do
I've written about these: directory structure, file naming conventions,
style guide (coming along nicely), templates (got a nice Frame one), need a
Word one (oppps - Word knowledge lost in my mind somewhere).
Day to day work
you know how it is: it comes up; you do it.
I really don't understand the advanced postings you send.
How do you all do and learn it all?
