Updating v9 book in v10

Mar 16, 2012 9:25 AM

When I try to update a book created in FM9, I get multiple error messages that the file can't be opened because it was created in a previous version.  What's up with that?

    Hi Dennis,


    FrameMaker refrains from saving all the older version fm documents in a book when they are not open. This prohibits silent(without the user being aware) saving of fm documents to a later version.

    To accomplish Book Update for such a case, open all book components and then update the book OR open-save-close all book components and then perform the book updation.


    #Tip: Try clicking Shift+File menu to explore more book wide commands in the File sub-menu.



    Nakshatra Bhardwaj,

    That sounds like it would be a good thing to file as a feature request.

    Here is where you can do it:
