In FrameMaker, a project gives a single-window view of the resources within your Help system. The project management feature allows you to create projects and manage all resources related to a project from a single place. You can create a project and add all resources (such as files and folders) related to that project from different locations on your computer. You can also add resources by easily dragging files from Windows Explorer and dropping them into the project window.
The project management feature allows you to perform the following tasks with ease and help you to enhance your productivity:
- Single-window view of all project-related files and folders
- Drag-and-drop content from Windows Explorer to add content to your project
- Drag-and-drop content across locations to easily organize content within your project
- Insert an image by simply dragging it from project window and dropping it on to your document
- Rename files and folders
Once you have created a project, you need to add resources to your project. Typically, you would have stored all your project-related files at different places on your computer. You can add all those locations to your project to get a complete view of all the project resources.
Right-click a project resource (location, folder, or file) to perform the additional operations from the context menu.
The Edit option opens the selected file for editing. If the file is a valid FrameMaker file, it is opened for editing in FrameMaker. If FrameMaker doesn't recognize the file, it is opened in the associated program for editing.
