Short answers to some of your questions:
Yes, opening the docs in v9 is all you have to do and save as you
However, you can only backsave to v8 from v9. We have run into this
problem several times, having to find someone one on v8 to then backsave
Hope that helps!

Subject: Upgrading FM from 7.1 to 9
My company is considering upgrading our FrameMaker from 7.1p114 to 9
(yippee, we've never upgraded before!).
We're all running Win XP.
Please forgive my lack of knowledge, but do we open our v7.1 FM files in
v9 and then save them as v9? Or is it more complicated than that?
Once our FM files are saved as v9, can any users still using v7.1 still
read them (there's a chance our counterpart US office won't get the
upgrade to v9)? Or would we need to save back as v7 for those rare
occasions? Are there any known issues with doing this?
We currently using WebWorks (WebWorks > AutoMap 2003 Client within FM
menu) to produce CHM files. Will this be affected if we upgrade to v9?
When you buy a v9 licence, do you automatically get all the patches that
Any other tips for upgrading?
Can anyone confirm that v7.1 is no longer supported by Adobe?
Thanks very much in advance for your help, Lynn
