RE: FrameMaker training in July


It is possible an editor may choose to use Frmaemaker on a Unix platform
and therefore not have it on their laptop. Most basic editing in Frame 
should be familiar to anyone who has used any PC word processing program,
but when you get past the basic level into more advanced formating and
into graphics, it gets a non-intuitive and the help function is not very
good. Therefore, it would be nice if they could minimize time on the basics
and focus on common advanced tasks.

There has been positive response here. In particular see Howard's note
below. I believe you have also met with Roger Marks at his interim. We might
hold the training in a small room set up classroom style , so editors could
bring their pc's to the training and upload some information and templates
that the IEEE wants people to use. My guess right now is we schedule this
from 6:30 - 9:00pm on Tuesday, 11July, but this not be in the big tutorial
room but rather in a room with about 25 people, so there would be better
interactions with the editors. Anone serious in being an editor should bring
FrameMaker to the meeting on their machine (I assume this is possible).

Comments? I need a volunteer to own this training from the SEC and
coordinate a little with editors in the Working Groups (not much work

From Howard Frazier:

I don't think that you can give a useful tutorial on
framemaker in an hour and a half.

However, it might be possible to use a three hour session
to explain the editorial process, including a brief
overview of framemaker.

We did this in the past, and it was helpful.
Since we have a bunch of new editors coming on board
for 802.3ae and 802.3af, as well as in other dots,
it might be worthwhile to hold such a session.

At the last Standards Board meeting, during lunch, we discussed the
possibility of myself and Jennifer Longman, a fellow Project Editor,
conducting a FrameMaker tutorial while at the July 802 meeting in LaJolla.
Is this still something you would like us to do?  We would still very much
like to hold one, but I realize planning the time and the space may be
difficult at this time.  (Quite honestly it slipped my mind until recent
interactions we've had with the dot-16 tech editors.)  Perhaps if we've
missed the boat this time, we'll set something more concrete for November.

Please let me know.
