I can't answer *all* of your questions, but I know someone who can.  ;-)

ATCS includes RoboHelp, and the current version of RH provides seamless 
integration from FM source, skipping the RTF step that used to be required. 
Additionally, you can set the new RH to recognize TopicAlias markers as the 
context-sensitive links. Although the new RH doesn't import the ePub stationery 
or WWP templates, it does provide the same type of mapping directly between FM 
formats and RH formats, so I don't think it's going to be as big of a deal as 
moving from WWP Pro to ePub would be. However, we don't have a lot of custom 
macros in our WWP Pro templates, either.

We're migrating from Frame 7.2 w/ WWP Pro 2003 and Acrobat 7.0 Pro to the ATCS. 
I have been talking with someone at Adobe (an "ATCS Evangelist") about all the 
in's and out's of moving. The main reason we're moving is that ePublisher is 
cost-prohibitive to upgrade, and RH now does what ePub (and formerly WWP Pro) 
did, but the output to Adobe AIR format with the integrated support for 
interactive animated 3D drawings and video will truly take our deliverables to 
the next level for our audience. Plus, the $999 for the whole ATCS deal is, 
well, irresistible...

Subject: Moving from Frame 7.1 and Webworks to Adobe Technical Communication 

My doc team currently uses Frame 7.1, Acrobat 7.0 Standard, and WebWorks 
ePublisher Pro 9.1 to generate our printed docs and online help. Now we are 
looking at the Adobe Technical Communication Suite to do it all. However we 
have some concerns about moving everyone over and the impact it could have on 
our existing docs, templates, and workflow.

Has anyone had a similar situation and switched to ATCS?

What issues did you encounter?

Can Frame 7.1 and ATCS live together on the same computer? 

Does a ATCS install mess up WebWorks ePublisher Pro 9.1?

Can you use source files from Frame 8 in ePublisher Pro 9.1?
