Missing Colour Files On The Reinstallation Of Freehand MX

Postby Sally » Fri Jul 20, 2012 11:21 am

I have just reinstalled Freehand MX in the hope that the colour files reappeared. However this is not the case. Why the problem? Freehand 10 is okay.

PS I have a screenshot of the application's files but cannot upload it here for some reason.

Hi Sally,
The "upload attachment" tab is only on the Full Editor.
Click the Quick Reply button and you will see Full Editor next to the Submit button. In Full Editor mode there is the Upload Attachment tab at the bottom along with Choose File, where you get the image from your computer. Once uploaded, click Preview to see it inline. Like this:

I see the problem. You are in the wrong directory.
Instead go here:
Your Home Directory>Library>Application Support>Macromedia>FreeHand MX>11>English>Settings>Color

There you will find your colors and/or where to put color libraries into. This is the US version, btw.

Look in the Color folder and see if all the Pantone, Toyo, Crayon, etc. files are there. If not, there's the problem and you will need to put them in.

Also look in the FreeHand help menu under, "Adding colors from color libraries" if you have your color libraries located somewhere else.

The only time the colors libraries show up is when you have a document open or started, otherwise they are grey. So open a new document and see if they are now in black.
