Brad, I'm *not* a WWP reseller ;-) and have used it w/ the Import Utility to migrate 4 RH (Word) projects into one FM single-sourced project. (I've done other smaller stuff with it, too.) I don't think the Import Utility is included with WWP, though - it's like an extension for the Professional product (not the Standard version that ships free w/ FM). Be aware that the Import Utility creates a single HUGE MIF file that you'll need to then save as .fm and split out the H1's into separate files so that pagination works properly. ;-) Rick Quatro sells a script that does this quickly and efficiently (pardon the plug).
The only caveat I'd have is, make sure your RH project has the topics hierarchically organized in folders, because otherwise all the topics come into the huge single MIF in alphabetical order, which can be very tedious to reorganize.

You then need to apply styles and break the content into chapters (it all goes into one FM file). I've used it on some RoboHelp projects, and it worked quite well. All graphics came in and links were good, but links had to be redone after setting up the individual chapter files. Disclaimer: I'm a WWP reseller.

So...I have a paper-format user manual which was written in RoboHelp, and I would like to convert these over to Adobe FrameMaker. Has anyone on this list ever tried this before? If so, what were your results? -Brad Simmons _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to Framers as lindag at techcomplus.com.
