Version 220.127.116.11 now available!
Fact Sheet Fusion is a tool to facilitate the rapid generation of standardized fact sheets in HTML (Hyper Text Mark-up Language), PDF (Portable Document Format) or XML (eXtensible Mark-up Language).
Users of Fact Sheet Fusion require no knowledge of HTML or XML.
To generate high quality fact sheets takes three simple steps. First, define a set of topics that will form the structure of each fact sheet. Second, input text for each topic for each entity (fact sheet subject matter) for which a fact sheet is to be created and third, attach media (images, video and PDFs etc) related to each entity.
Once these simple steps have been completed Fact Sheet Fusion can automatically generate fact sheets based on a selected template. As a part of the fact sheet creation process, Fact Sheet Fusion can automatically:
- Convert, watermark and resize images.
- Create an fact sheet index page.
- Create a glossary page.
- Cross link fact sheets listed within other fact sheets and their alternative names.
- Automatically cross link fact sheet abbreviated binomial names.
- Cross link glossary terms found within fact sheets.
- Cross link glossary terms found in other glossary definitions.
- Cross link fact sheet names found within glossary definitions.
- Transform fact sheets as HTML, PDF or XML.
