Something that will open old FH files? but continue to work

Postby p_allan » Sat Jan 14, 2012 7:04 pm

I need something that will open old FH files, but continue to work with new Mac OS down the line. I am not a graphic designer. I use FH for my own pleasure and many things such as greeting cards, presentation of my illustrations, etc.
So my needs are possibly not as great as yours. However, when I want to have things printed by a printing company and not just on my RGB printer, I may need to be able to output CMYK and separations.

Any suggestions?

Well, for now the only way is to buy Illustrator CS5 to open FreeHand files on the latest Mac OS. Or you can run a Windows version of FreeHand in Parallels or Fusion with a Windows install on the latest Mac OS. Neither are perfect solutions though.

Now, that's an idea that hadn't occurred to me... I just got a new macbook at work running Lion and was lamenting not being able to run Freehand any longer and I think I might just have a windows installer. I gotta try that - thanks for the suggestion.

The only reason I am keeping my old G5 Power PC is because it runs Freehand 10 so well. I would love to see Freehand on my iPad.

I've got 4 Macs with various OS (except Lion of course!!) all running Freehand, would never be without it, like an old mate :-)
