Unable to create a new file. - Macromedia Freehand

Hello everyone, Here's a strange issue with Freehand 10. Just recently, I am unable to open a new file. I can open, edit and save an existing file, but if I go File -> New or command + n, nothing happens. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Freehand several times to no avail. I can't find much about this anywhere. Any clues? thanks!...

    This has come up on this forum before. One possible solution is to quit FH
    and delete your Preferences file.

    See this thread:
    [url]http://tinyurl.com/rx54[/url]

    I don't know about reinstalling FH10, but reinstalling FHMX doesn't
    overwrite your Preferences and Settings file, meaning it doesn't remove
    corrupted prefs or corrupted default doents. You don't start over with a
    clean slate of settings unless you manually delete all settings files before
    reinstalling.

    Hi Judy,

    Thanks for your reply. I have manually deleted all the pref files mentioned in the linked article and tried the fix with the template, but the same thing is still happening. I'm puzzled!
