I have v1.1 of RoboHelp for FrameMaker and v7.2 FrameMaker.
RoboHelp complains that FrameMaker is not installed. Is v7.2 not
supported? Is there a way I can fool RoboHelp into using it anyway
(filename changes, etc.)?
As far as I know, RHF doesn't support FrameMaker 7.2, as 7.2
came out significantly after RHF. It seems to recognize FrameMaker
7.1, but has problems with more recent versions of Distiller that
ship with more recent versions of FrameMaker. I'd suspect that
Frame 7.0p578 would be the best option for withing with RHF.
However, you CAN have multiple versions of FrameMaker on the
same system. So you could have Frame 7.0 (for use with RHF) and
Frame 7.2 for other projects on the same system. Save your
FrameMaker files as MIF files for maximum portability across
The sticking point will be Distiller - multiple versions of
Distiller on a system can cause all sorts of issues.
