Sorry, what did you try to do? You can open (and upgrade) a FM11 book and its docs to FM2017, but you have to open and save them first.

Yes - use the Shift-File command to Open All Files in Book to speed it up. Then you can use the Shift-Save all Open Files after they are upgraded. Remember, maintain a backup of your FM11 source docs because once upgraded, they can't be reverted back to FM11 (except by back-saving as MIF).

Hi Jeff.  I'm working on the FM2017 book that I saved and renamed.  The chapters are showing up as the source file path name which is changing the 2017 FM files with the 2018 changes.  I guess I saved it in the wrong source file?  can I rename the chapters with a different name?
