Since I'm on Windows I havent tested this, but it might be a solution to some:

Parallels support says version 7 will not run Snow Leopard on Lion. Too bad, there's still no solution except to not use Lion, or abandon FH.

Well, if you can get your hands on Snow Leopard Server (or 10.5 Leopard Server) this will install as a guest OS under Lion/Parallels Desktop 7. I'm running FH 10.0.2 this way on my Mac mini Server (mid 2011).
Searching the web, you can even find descriptions of how to trick Parallels into running Snow Leopard Client - it's a bit cumbersome though...

Has anyone tried VMware Fusion 4 to run Snow Leopard (client) inside Lion?

I just spoke with VMware and they confirm that you can run Snow Leopard in emulation using Fusion 4.1 installed in Lion.

I just installed Snow Leopard on Fusion 4. The install failed 3 times but finally finished the 4th try. Freehand seems to run fine so far. I am now trying to figure out how to copy and paste between the two. I also noticed that my freehand files that reside on the Lion side are grayed out when I try to do a file open from freehand.

It appears that VMware had to remove the ability to virtulize Snow Leopard client from Fusion. That means if you update past Fusion 4.1, Snow Leopard client will not work anymore.

In VM ware Fusion settings I have Snow Leopard server set up so that applications are just accessed directly by Lion with file sharing between the two systems. FreeHand runs seamlessly.
A bit of a fiddle and a little expense to set up but worth it to avoid hours and days of anguish and having to move to Illustrator full time quite apart from accessing old files.
As long as VMware Fusion is kept up to date with new Mac Os upgrades I'm assuming this will run for a while now without further problem as the Snow Leopard/FreeHand side won't change.
