You can save as RTF, which opens directly in Word. You can then do a save as in Word if you want .docx format.

I use this so when an engineer wants a Word file for commenting. There are numerous formatting issues and other issues with the exported files, but they are good enough for adding comments (with tracked changes).


I would not recommend using the exported files in any other way.

2017 to Word? (I'm still on Frame 12)

Is this possible? Does it result in a usable doc (ie, is the formatting
decent?)

I was at a job interview today and it sounds like they could really use the
Conditional aspects of Frame in order to deliver various flavours of the
same manuals. However, they have done without a tech writer for a while and
like the fact that their engineers can simply go into a Word doc and make
changes themselves.

I thought they might try exporting to Word so the engineers could (with
Track Changes on) make edits in Word. Then the new tech writer - preferably
me ;-))) - could incorporate those changes into the Frame docs.
