    Mixed X5 and v6 environment?

    hapax_legomenon
      My company is currently using RoboHelp X5. Not all parts of the company want to upgrade to version 6 right away.

      Can you use these two versions together? Can X5 project files be used in v6, and vice versa?

      Thanks

          Well, you can run the two version on the same machine with caution (it is obviously not recommended).

          However, personally I would not recommend switching between version and source files in the two versions. Hopefully someone else will pop up if there is a way around this, but my guess is that it will be fiddly and you risk getting in a right muddle as the underlying database has been updated for Robohelp 6 along with lots of additional features.

          Once you have updated your source files to Robohelp 6 it is best to edit manage the files in Robohelp 6. That's my take.

          Cheers
