opening emf files - Macromedia Freehand

If I export an FH8 drawing as an EMF and then open that EMF file in FH8, should I expect the title bar to display a .FH8 extension? If so, does this mean that Freehand is actually opening the FH file that bears the same name as the EMF? Or that it converts the EMF to FH?...

    If I export an FH8 drawing as an EMF and then open that EMF file in FH8,
    should I expect the title bar to display a .FH8 extension? If so, does this
    mean that Freehand is actually opening the FH file that bears the same name
    as the EMF? Or that it converts the EMF to FH?

    Steve,
    When you open a file that is not a FH doent it is converted to a FH
    doent. It's been a while since I worked in FH8, but more recent versions
    add (Converted) to the filename shown in the title bar.

    If you open an EMF file, edit it and wish to save again as an EMF file, you
    will have to Export to the EMF format. A better way to work is to always
    have a current FH version of the file which you open and edit. Export from
    the FH file to other file formats as needed.
