You can keep both CS6 and Animate installed. As part of Create Cloud subscription you can even download CS6 if you don't have it.
CS6 had some features that are not around anymore. There was a Deco tool, TLF text type, an older version of IK bones, and it could support ActionScript 2.
Aside from those, everything should be editable and work ok in Animate.
True the Deco tool is gone but I always go back and use it in CS 6 because as Colin said you can have both installed at the same time on your system. I create what i want in CS6 and then copy the generated files to CC 2017 which works fine because there's no code in generated Deco tool files AFTER they've been created.
Thanks Colin. Much appreciated.
