What's new and improved in FS Pro 2020?

FS Pro 2020 is a vast improvement over its already excellent predecessor. Based on user feedback, we have upgraded the user interface, interactive Outline Pane, intuitive Style Manager and much more.

However, the most revolutionary feature is its cloud publishing. FS Pro 2020 enables publishing of content directly from Microsoft Word to a web page or presentation format.

Cloud Publishing

Using FS Pro 2020's new cloud publishing feature, you can publish all your content directly from MS Word to a responsive web page or online presentation. All the content you create in MS Word becomes instantly accessible on any screen, when you need it, where you need it. Need to quickly check a manual on your phone? Need to run through a proposal on your tablet on the road? Thanks to FS Pro 2020, all your information is at your fingertips. There is no longer a need to browse Word files.

Updated Style Manager

When editing styles in the Style Manager, it is now possible to:

  • edit a style in Word or in the Style Manager with the same effect,
  • use the Word style hierarchy,
  • apply certain properties (font, color, size) to all styles or a specific collection of styles, so you don’t have to select the same properties every time over and over again, and
  • edit different styles from the Style Manager without having to close the Style Manager every time.

As a result, the Style Manger is more efficient and has improved functionality and options.

Updated Outline Pane

In FS Pro 2020, it is now possible to really use the Outline Pane as a tool. You can:

  • drag and drop components (maps, blocks, etc.),
  • change the information type,
  • navigate to elements in your document, and
  • collapse elements to keep a clear overview of your structure.

The Outline Pane has also gotten an aesthetic upgrade. The icons of the information types have been improved and the general look is now more in line with the FS Pro Ribbon.
