    While importing the .mif files (using FrameMaker 9.0) into Robohelp 8.0, the following issues are faced inspite of applying Patch 1 and 2 of Robohelp:

    1. Extra spaces appear in Table cell
    2. The cross-references do not work though it appears as hyperlinked (they work properly in FM)
    3. Heading Styles get indented

    Currently I am manually solving these issues. A quick response as to how to tackle these issues will be highly appreciated.

    Thanking you in anticipation.
