Hi, everyone,

Just to be clear, when you're talking about bringing Frame 7 documents into
a later version of FrameMaker here, are you strictly talking about
structured documents or are you including unstructured documents in your
assessment of how well it works?

What are your thoughts and experiences about converting (specifically)
unstructured FrameMaker documents to a more current version of FrameMaker?

My gut feeling, based on research I did about a year ago, is that the
documents need to be structured. I'm just starting to dive back into the
research because we need to make a move soon, and this thread is my first
stop.

Thanks,

Deanna.
