Hi All ,
Is FDK license required to develope FDK script to automate routine task in FM?
we are going to upgrade frame maker 8 to 11 . we decided to use FDK script to automate coversion of FM file PDF .
so do we need FDK license to develope it or is it free source ?
is it mandatory to get FDK license before developing script ?
or else is there any FDK ready made scripts to automate routine tasks in FM.
can any one please share your experince / suggestion on this .
your comments highly apprciable .
Correction, AFAIK, there is no charge for using the FDK nor do you need a license to develop plug-ins.
For prototyping and application, it might be easier to develop using Extendscript.
FrameScript from Finite Matters (http://www.framescript.com/) is another scripting alternative (commercial) that may be more robust and is much better documented than Extendscript.
To simply automate FM to PDF conversion, you might want to look one of the FM batch tools like:
