We are currently using RoboHelp 9, but because the company is going to upgrade to Word 365, we are having issues creating wordfiles. We are looking into upgrading our Technical Communication Suite, or perhaps only RoboHelp, to 2017. Is it possible to open our RoboHelp 9 projects in RoboHelp 2017?
Yes RoboHelp 2017 will open RoboHelp 9 projects and it should be without any issues. The only problem upgrades are from version 7 or below as 8 changed the way lists work.
If you want to test one of your projects, install the trial version of RoboHelp 2017 on a machine other than the one(s) you currently use.
You will need to sychronise the RoboHelp upgrade with the Word upgrade.
