This week following on from my NotePad++ S1000D Compare tutorial, I look at how I work with S1000D XML on my MacBookPro. I know a number of my clients like to work with MAC OS so here is a tool that can help you along your journey.

Often when I am travelling I am asked by a client to look over some of their S1000D structures and as I do not always travel with both my MAC and my PC laptop, I use tools to perform this comparison.

In this tutorial, I look at the free and openly available Brackets editor, which is popular with web and stylesheet developers, but it is just as powerful for working with S1000D Data Modules.

Watch the full video on our YouTube Channel – HERE – make sure you like and subscribe, this helps me know that the content I am producing is helping you along your technical documentation journey.

Join me at TDW-Live this year where we will look at more tools that I use to help me work with XML and support specifications like S1000D.

A trained aircraft engineer (rotorcraft), I entered in to the field of technical information writing S1000D data modules on a major European military platform.

After a series of high profile project roles and the privilege of supporting clients worldwide, I ended my 'employed' career at a subsidiary of Boeing Aircraft after I decided to leave and focus on TDW full-time.

From my time supporting clients worldwide, I could see that there was a market need for an independent organisation that could be a trusted advisory source for those needing to implement successful technical information strategies.

I am passionate about the art of technical communications and the process, software and skills needed in our market.
