Knowledge Transfer

tformat and our partners offer a range of standard training courses or tailor made custom courses based on topics and /or duration to fit with your requirements on Arbortext or Antenna-House products.

I am sure your [Arbortext APP] training is one of the great training I have ever had. And it really helped us a lot on our APP development project, being able to develop our fully automated concept workflow ourselves.

Arbortext APP (3B2) Training

Version 11 and Arbortext Integration
Since the release of APP version 10 there are a number of new technologies and development approaches available to APP template developers. Whether you are upgrading from Arbortext classic user, interested to explore the new composition engine and its capabilities within and outside the Styler interface, tformat can provide flexible training and development mentoring options.

JavaScript FOM API
This new course introduces APP users’ and developers to the JavaScript and Formatting Object Model Application Programming Interface, first introduced in APP (3B2) version 10. This same technology is also used within Arbortext Styler 6.0+ PDF/Print stylesheet source code edits, as APP is the embedded formatting Print/PDF engine.

Tailored Courses and remote Mentoring

  • Existing user with some experience?
  • Learnt the product in production, never had formal training, have knowledge gaps?
  • Need tailored training on specific subjects?
  • Need to implement new features or workflow components to meet new requirements?

These are just some of the reasons why tailored training format might suit your requirements. Working with you we can put together flexible engagements to directly target what you need to know and look at how this may be achieved through a mix of training, hands-on mentoring and optional follow up support.

Scripted Courses
With our APP (3B2) training experience dating back to 1998, we understand the different learning approaches to the product and ensure our courses are flexible allowing our trainers to adapt to the audience and learning objectives.

Our training materials have been independently developed and maintained since their initial re-write for APP Version 9 and subsequently expanded to encompass the new technologies and methods introduced in Version 10-11.
