Freehand import bugs.

Recommended Posts

Hello together,

 

I have also problems with opening Freehand-files. First I could´t  open any Freehand-files, so I changed the suffix from .fh to .fh11. Now Affinity open the file, but only shows a blank white page.  What I´m doing wrong?

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Have you lots of different sized documents on the pasteboard?

 

What version are the native Freehand files - are they pre FH11 (MX)?

I'd upload an old Freehand file for you to look at… but it won't allow it for some reason?

 

 

Can you just send them to support@seriflabs.com please.

The freehand file are from the version 11.0.2 Freehand MX.

 

I´m sorry, I´m not a native speaker... I don´t know, what you mean with paste board. :-(

 

My working bench is empty, my Mac is fresh restarted and the only activity is the try to open the MX-file. ... result is a white quad on my screen. The MX file should show a printing plate with one logo which is repeated 16 times.

The document size in Freehand MX is DIN A 3 and the document size in Affinity 223 x 315 mm. But I don´t know why Affinity should change the document size....

OK - I'l do that.

 

Just to confirm though - a PDF exported through Freehand opens in Affinity almost perfectly AND all the text is live and editable NOT converted to paths.

 

It's a work-around, but one I can live with for the time being.
