Compiling webhelp output version 2015 from Robohelp version 2017

Hello,

Here is a scenario:

I have Robohelp version 2017 installed on my local machine and I have few other team members using Robohelp version 2015. We update the same help source.

  1. I update the help content on my machine by using RH version 2017 and generate a webhelp 2015 output.
  2. I check it in the source control.
  3. The admin takes the most updated source of the help files on the build server and generates a webhelp and then    integrates it with the product. He uses Robohelp 2015 to generate the webhelp.

The question is, will step 3 give an error or pose any risks/issues? Reason: I generated a 2015 web help from RH 2017 software and the admin generates a 2015 web help from RH 2015 software.

Any thoughts if anyone has tried anything like this?

Running a project in both versions should not give you a problem unless your output is HTML5. The issues are covered in the RoboHelp Tour on my site.

Note that this is the first time that opening a project in the current and previous version has been possible and it should not be assumed this is a new feature.
