1)Choose File > Publish.

The Publish dialog is displayed. The Publish dialog allows you to publish FrameMaker content to one or more of the available output formats.



note:    When you open the Publish dialog, the drop-down list defaults to currently opened docu­ment or the book/ditamap file. Keep in mind that if you change the focus to another file (book, ditamap, or document) in your workspace, the newly selected file will be published.

Select the output format to publish.

C (Generate Multiple Outputs)

Open the Generate Multiple Outputs dialog and select one or more formats to publish simul­taneously.

Publish Responsive HTML5 output to RoboHelp Server. This button is active only when you select Responsive HTML5 as the output format.

View the published output for the selected format if you have previously generated output for the format.

Choose an output format.

G (Settings)

The Settings drop-down list provide options that allow you to edit, create, and browse publish settings for the current document. For details, see Configure publish settings.

The drop-down list also provides an option to import an ISF file. For details, see Use the Robo­Help settings (isf) file.

In the Generate Multiple Outputs dialog:
