Migrate Publisher Project Window

This window allows you to migrate existing WebWorks Publisher projects to ePublisher Pro. Migrate existing WebWorks Publisher projects to ePublisher Pro to view or work with an existing WebWorks Publisher project using ePublisher Pro. You do not have to migrate existing WebWorks Publisher projects to ePublisher Pro. You can continue to use your existing WebWorks Publisher projects using WebWorks Publisher if the existing projects function well and produce the output you want.

To view or work with an existing WebWorks Publisher project using ePublisher Pro, you must migrate the WebWorks Publisher project into ePublisher Pro. You cannot open an existing WebWorks Publisher .wwp, .wfp, or .wdt file with ePublisher Pro, because WebWorks Publisher and ePublisher Pro are based on different technologies. ePublisher Pro is based on XML, while WebWorks Publisher projects were based on a proprietary macro language. When you migrate a WebWorks Publisher project, the migration tool converts your .wwp, .wfp, or .wdt file into XML. Once ePublisher Pro converts the WebWorks Publisher project into XML, ePublisher Pro can use the migrated style information from the WebWorks Publisher project.

When you migrate an existing WebWorks Publisher project to ePublisher Pro, ePublisher Pro updates your existing WebWorks project and makes it compatible with ePublisher Pro. The migration process pulls style and formatting information from your existing WebWorks Publisher project into ePublisher Pro. However, after the migration, you must still use ePublisher Pro to refine your project and recreate any customizations made in the WebWorks Publisher project.

The fields are defined as follows:

WebWorks Publisher Project

Specifies the path of the existing WebWorks Publisher project to migrate to ePublisher Pro.
