Because it will double your productivity with MadCap Flare!
"Kaizen" is a Japanese word that captures the concept of continuously making small improvements. It's from the world of Lean manufacturing, but applies to individuals, too. Every day - you work to refine your skills and learn new tools to make your work better.
By importing MarkDown files to Flare you can let your SMEs contribute in a format that is platform-independent, intuitive, easy to learn, human-readable, and uses plain text while providing basic formatting. Supports both tables and LaTeX equations. See video.
With the Tag Replacer you can replace tags and attributes in all topics and snippets in your project, or even across multiple projects. See video.
With the Topic Splitter, you can work in a single Flare topic so that you don’t have to decide up-front what structure your project should have. You can let it develop in an organic, agile way. When you have nailed down the structure, just click Split by H1-H2, and all the topics and even the TOC is created for you. See video.
With the Data Import tools you can create topics, snippets, or other XML files from different data sources. This lets you maintain data in, for example, Excel, and then create the topics using a template file. See video.
Presents you with a list of potential glossary candidates from your current project to help you get up and running fast.
Click a button to create a Word Cloud from the most used words in your project, or from any folder.
Quickly add To-Dos using annotations. Gives you a complete overview of tasks in your project.
Import a glossary from Excel. This lets you collaborate using Excel.
This creates a bookmark for each heading, and creates a TOC that links to those headings.

You can now link between .md files, and the links turn into links to .htm files.
You can use variables for images, and the images are imported properly.
I love to create automated solutions to time consuming tasks and problems. I'm one of those people who would happily spend 5 hours automating a task that would only take 2 hours to complete manually. The magic happens when the solutions are shared, and someone else can save time without spending any time on the solution. By developing the Kaizen Plugin I hope to ease your frustrations and make your work more fun.
