file cannot be opened by an older version. Cheers

Thanks a lot for this information. 

I was on an impression that Affinity at-least follow the "Plus" (X3-X8) option on older application.  


Kind regards

The changes to, for example HSL layer seem to justify this.

While backward compatibility (new software can open older format) for software is pretty normal and expected by users forward compatibility (old software can open newer format) is achieved by some rare products and has proven to be often come with serious drawbacks. It's usually also a time-consuming hassle to implement this. So it's fair and legit not to support it in my opinion.
