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.

WebWorks has a tool called the Import Utility that will import a RoboHelp
project and convert the content to FM. 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.

Please contact me offlist if you want more information.

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?
