Before you try Flare, do MIF2Go -- like a number of other writers in the thread have said, it's the best way to export from FM to RTF.
Flare is a decent tool, but if all you need to do is reliably round trip and you have the rest of your editorial flow working well in Frame... the conversion is unlikely to be worth the time and effort. And if the SMEs don't do too much damage during the re-write, it should be a pretty easy round trip. Art Campbell art.campb...@gmail.com "...
