Praise for Arbortext 101

“A long-awaited guide” ~ Arbortext community leader

At last! A book like this has been needed for many years by the Arbortext community. The writing is clear and concise,not too “tech-y” (but just technical enough), and covers everything an Arbortext configurer needs in order to set up shop with this complex software suite. I wish I had had this book long ago to help me navigate the potential pitfalls of setting up Arbortext in a multi-user environment.The best practices shown here will result in a very clean, manageable Arbortext configuration.  ~ Todd Hicks, long-time Arbortext customer

 

Great resource for Arbortext Users  I wish this book had been available when I first started using Arbortext tools. Actually I wish I had this info before starting with AE. This book is very easy to read but even better for me as a reference, as I expect to use these facts now and in the future. The info on custom directory was worth the price of the book for me. I’ll be referring to sections on dcf and pcf files as well. ~ M. McGinnis, Arbortext user and Single-Sourcing Solutions customer
