TCS suite does not have an ability to output from RH to FrameMaker. As Adobe continue to integrate their products, that would seem a likely feature in the fullness of time, but not yet.
Thanks, Peter. You just saved me a whole bunch of time. Now, I can go ahead and upgrade to RH7 without having to install and check out the Suite. And to you folks at Adobe who might be listening in, being able to create Frame output from RH would be awesome.
I too am interested in doing this. So far what I have been able to do is create a Framemaker book and live link it to a RH project. I simply change the FM original and then click update in the enhanced version of RH7. Job done!
Note that the RH7 supplied with the suite can do this, the standalone cannot.
I would also prefer being able to output to an FM book for proofreading topics etc.
I just started at this company and inherited 100s of RH files. Being able to go from Frame to RH doesn't provide me with any benefits. Instead, what I was hoping to be able to do was to go from RH to Frame so I could improve the quality of my printed documentation and PDFs.
If that is what you are interested in, you need to advise the RoboHelp development team. Only by hearing the desires of the masses is it likely to happen. Oh, and they don't visit here in the forums, so they will likely never see it. To advise them, Adobe has created a handy dandy form you can use. And believe it or not, the developers do see these!

Done... Thanks, Rick. Now I just have to hold my breath and wait for Robohelp 8 and Technical Communication Suite 2. And in the meantime, continue fighting the various bugs and limitations of Word....
