If you are using any other apps or plugins that have something to do
with FrameMaker, make sure that they are not picky about the FM version.
We have one writer on 7.2 and three writers on 7.1. We don't have any
problems exchanging files. The problem we do have is with WebWorks
Publisher 2003 for FrameMaker. We didn't realize when we decided to put
the new writer on FM 7.2 that WWP version 18.104.22.1686 is not compatible
Quadralay released a later version 8.6.6587.0 that claims to be
compatible with 7.2, but when we contacted them, they advised us against
installing that version for the writer on 7.2 for our situation, because
it could cause problems when she opens the template/existing projects.
(Does anyone have any thoughts about this?)
