Seems like a lot of extra work to me. I'm currently converting our Word
documents to Frame, and it is a lot of work. You must build your Frame
template with paragraph tags that have the same names as those of your
Word style sheet; you lose most (if not all) of your cross-references so
you have to manually replace them; all of you autonumbers are turned into
text so you have to renumber them; and you lose all of your graphics so
you have to reinsert them. I have to convert about 90 megs of Word
documentation and, by early estimates, it will take me about 45 days.

Something to think about.

We are thinking about using Frame for paper documents and Word for
online documents. I'm curious to find out whether anyone else is
doing this/has considered this.

I know that you can't import Frame docs into Word, but you can
Word docs into Frame.

Our dilemma is that Frame is far superior for books, but Word (and
addons) are far superior for creating online help. But, what if we
want to link a book to our online help?

Just some thoughts/questions that have cropped up as we think about
this. What have others done regarding choosing tools for books vs
tools for online?
