Thanks, Matt, for the information.

But I'm confused.

I have a subscription for FrameMaker (2017 release).

But my Adobe account tells me: FrameMaker (Release 2019) Subscription Edition.

What's going on here?

Yes, sooner or later, I'd like to upgrade from FM 2017 to FM 2019.

Do I have to do this manually?

Or is the upgrade a part of the "normal" FM 2017 update process?

Hi Barb,

Many thanks for your hints.

But FM would not be FM if it would work correctly from the beginning.

Therefore, how can I import the publishing settings (*.sts)?

When I try to open an old FM 2017 sts file in FM 2019, I get this error message:

-> "Analysing of sts file impossible. Try again."
