Pasting vector from Freehand into Fireworks -- - Macromedia Fireworks

Can anyone explain why when I try to paste a vector based graphic , lets say somewhat intensive, from Freehand 8, 10, or MX into any version of FW OTHER THAN FW 3.0 that it does not include the vector paths anymore? It makes it a single uneditable graphic? Yet, I can paste the same graphic, no matter how complex into FW3 and then its fine. So what I wind up doing is copying from FH, then pasting into FW3, then hitting 'copy' and then pasting in FWMX. Somethings outta whack some how -- its doesnt make sense. My system ...

    Exporting as AI then importing in FW usually works. Kind of lousy you have to use MM's #1 competitors format to get stuff from one MM app to another... :)

    PinarelloRdr;
    Fw can import native Freehand files (note import dialogue options when
    you try it) and I usually use this instead of the clipboard, however it is
    possible that your import/export preferences in freehand do not include the
    vector capable formats and so it is being rasterized during copy/paste. -Tom
