And when you buy the Suite upgrade, *seriously* consider the maintenance
contract to effectively reduce the upgrade cost for future TCS releases.
Adobe has a fairly openly-stated policy of upgrading their products every 18

It will import FM docs, but it won't link to them. With the suite,
you're using a single set of source docs. With the standalone version,
you're repeatedly exporting FM docs to RH. Or making changes in two

But even if that doesn't matter to you, it makes no sense to buy the
standalone version of RH. If you have an FM license, you qualify for the
suite's upgrade price, which is less than a new RH license.
