Thinking about going to 11, will the new version allow me to continue to work as I do now in version 7.2 - I don't need the new bells and whistles at this time - simple structure and publishing in pdf is my primary tasking.
Not quite as easily – there was a major revamp of the UI in FM9 that seemed to have messed up quite a few experienced keyboard shortcut fans. It’s much more mouse-oriented these days (although most shortcuts continue to work). You’re also crossing the Unicode “barrier” too with an upgrade to FM11. You may experience font issues with that.
