    Default Freehand MX

    I recently tried to open a saved Freehand doent and received message that it
    couldn't open because it wasn't a valid Freehand doent. I then went to
    Macromedia website and looked under FAQ for help. I followed reinstalling and
    rebooting all in safe mode and it still didn't work. If that didn't work, it
    was probably a core level damage in Windows.

    I then installed Freehand MX on my husband's computer with different Windows
    operation and emailed my job. It would not open there either. Same message.
    Is it my Freehand disk or something else? And if so, am I out of luck and have
    to buy another disk?

    Try this:

    Go to http://groups.google.com/advanced_group_search

    In the newsgroup box type macromedia.freehand

    Enter your criteria and do a search of this newsgroup.

    I think you will find that it is not uncommon to save a FH file then get
    an error message when you try to open it. The file is corrupt, not the
    app. Sometimes you can fix the file by taking a corrupt font out of th
    system or removing placed file. Usually, it is hopeless and you have to
    resort to a backup. I usually save incremenatally with FH.

    Good luck.

    Does the file have a .fh filename extension? Some systems require it.

    Was the file sent via email? Some email programs mangle files, so put a good
    copy of the file in a folder and make a Zip archive before sending.

    Thanks,

    No this file wasn't sent email, but when I send to printer they always want me
    to zip file. I guess it is just a bad file. Of course, the file I did send to
    the printer is having a lot of problems and it was zipped. Sent as fh file,
    eps, etc and still having problems. I will just have to do some more research
    on Freehand MX and see what I can learn.
