A short answer: no. To get data from FTM into PAF it has to be in the form of a GEDCOM. Then it has to be created in FTM using these settings:


Destination: FTW
Version: 5.5
Character Set: ANSEL
and check the "Abbreviate Tags" box.

The PAF option in FTM (creating a GEDCOM section) should only be used if the PAF version receiving the file is 4 or earlier.
