Installation and Setup

Detailed information about installing DITA-FMx.

DITA-FMx supports DITA 1.2 (and earlier versions) on FrameMaker versions 7.2, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 2015, 2017, 2019, 2020, and 2022, and can be downloaded from

DITA-FMx is made up of two plugin components, one that provides import/export processing and one that provides general authoring support. DITA-FMx also provides three structure applications (DTD, EDD, template, and read/write rules files), two for DITA topic and map authoring and one for book publishing. The EDD and rules files have been set up to allow proper interaction with DITA-FMx. If you want to build your own DITA structure applications, you should clone these files and modify them as needed. For more information see Developing Custom Structure Applications.

As of DITA-FMx 2.0.06, support for authoring and publishing of Lightweight DITA (pre-release) is available.
