Eclipse S1000D version 11 for FrameMaker application released

Mekon is pleased to announce the release of its Eclipse S1000D version 11 for FrameMaker application.

The main features of this new release of this established application include:

S1000D Issue 4.2

This new release includes configuration for S1000D Issue 4.2. The inclusion of this issue of S1000D is added to the existing availability of Issue 1 Change 6 to Issue 4.1. We are also pleased to confirm that the application also support the latest version of FrameMaker v2017.

Copying and storing Data in the Data Reference manager

We have now added the ability to copy complete tables and store them in the Data Reference Manager for future use. This feature is particularly useful where a complex table structure has been created for a specific type of table which may then be required in other Data Modules. From past communications one such table is a Fits and Clearances table.

Sizing of Illustrations

As a reminder to our users that Illustrations can be resized by physically changing the size of the illustration in FrameMaker. This facility is in addition to the more usual method of defining the reproduction Height and Width attributes.

In addition to the above there have been a number of small changes and the correction of some reported problems. A full list of the changes can be viewed in the Release Notes which are available via the Eclipse S1000D Menu.
