Let’s take a look at these features in more detail:
Flare has both an HTML and XML editor, but the XML Editor is the primary editor. It helps edit content in an easy way. With the XML editor, users can edit and manage various types of content. The XML editor also has an environment similar to MS-word.
MadCap Flare allows you to publish your content with one click of a button. Flare also enables you to publish content in multiple formats with a single set of source files. The formats are responsive, web, print, desktop, and mobile.
Another powerful feature in MadCap Flare is single sourcing. This helps users to reuse content, and produce multiple outputs from the same set of source files. The tool enables you to single source projects in multiple ways, from topic-based authoring to snippets, variables, conditions and much more.
In Flare, topic-based authoring has maximized the reuse of content. Reusing content means that XML content manages all the information and allows personal information to be structured dynamically.
MadCap Fare enables users to import a number of different content types. You can import content into your project from MS-Word, PDF, HTML, DITA, RoboHelp, and FrameMaker, etc.
Flare supports responsive layouts. You can manage your content on desktop, tablet, and mobile. The responsive editor helps users manage the layout without any coding knowledge.
Source Control Support
Madcap flare supports the Source Control application to manage content and project files. Flare provides integrated support for applications such as Git, SVN, TFS, Microsoft VSS and Perforce etc. It also has its own source control named Madcap Central.
Madcap Flare’s integration with MadCap central allows a strong cloud-based platform for content and project management. This enables you to upload projects, import projects from other users, assign users to specific projects, set project statuses, receive notifications for activities and much more.
