Hi There,

 

I upgraded a large 2019 Classic file to 2019 new UI. It went smoothly and the file is looking good so far. I just noticed in the 2019 the robohelp file in the new UI is an rhpj. 

 

I now able to open the file in 2019 new UI. I want to upgrade this same file to 2020. But 2020 doesn't offer an rhpj choice in the drop down. When I upgraded from Classic to new UI, shouldn't the file extention changed to XPJ?

 

Thanks,

 

Julianna

I don't think you need to do a separate "upgrade" action for RH2019 New UI projects. Just open the RH2019 New UI project in RH2020 and it is upgraded automatically. A separate step is needed for RH Classic projects because the underlying structure is completely different. (This is my non-technical interpretation, not an offical description of the reason.)

In 2020 when I click Open Project I see this, only rhpj (RoboHelp Project) Upgrade Project is for Classic Projects. Projects already in 2019 New UI do not need to be upgraded. ________________________________________________________ My site www.grainge.org includes many free Authoring and RoboHelp resources that may be of help.

It looks like I can't edit my message above. I can open the file in both 2019 new UI and 2020. But I can't officially update it to 2020 because the ext. drop down does not have rhpj as an option.

 

Sorry for the two messages

 

Thanks,

Upgrade Project is for Classic Projects. Projects already in 2019 New UI do not need to be upgraded.
