I'm very glad that I'll be using a Mac, but would rather not give up FrameMaker. I will be bootstrapping tech pubs at this company, so I can choose whatever tools I want. Also, I would like to use Madcap, which I have not used before, but had been planning to use it at my current company.> > Neither FrameMaker nor Madcap is available for OS X.> > * Does anyone have any experience using FrameMaker on the Mac under either VMWare or Parallels Desktop? > > * Can anyone suggest a set of publishing solutions that are as powerful as Frame/Frame+Madcap/Frame+Robo, but that runs natively on a Mac?> > * Any other advice?> > Much obliged,> -Dave Dorbin, Manager-Elect> > > > > ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^> > ComponentOne Doc-To-Help 2009 is your all-in-one authoring and publishing > solution.
