I have old Freehand 8 files from the late 90's that I need to open that ran on a Powerbook G4 OS9. Freehand 8 is on that computer. The problem is the computer isn't working and I can't find the Freehand 8 cd. I do have the license number though (not sure if that is helpful). In trying to open my many Freehand files, I just bought a 2007 iMac 20" 4G with the goal of installing Freehand and eventually learning AI. I had Snow Leopard installed on it thinking the older OS will be more suitable for Freehand programs. I think AI CS4 will open older Freehand files, is this correct? But, I really enjoyed Freehand and would like to revisit the program to make changes on my old files. So, should I keep Snow Leopard? Or should I go to a newer OS? Does anyone know where I can buy Freehand? I don't think my old license number will be helpful at all, is this correct? Assuming Freehand is available for purchase, which Freehand should I buy? Any advice is greatly appreciated. What a shame that Freehand is obsolete, I really enjoyed using it 15-20 yrs ago.
