This is a cross post (with extra comments) from the Freeway section but worth saying over here as well for those who are not aware (but many already know) - It’s not possible to open/edit Exhibeo galleries in Exhibeo from the FW exported version.
None of the Freeway/Softpress tempates that use Exhibeo exports actually include the original Exhibeo file - mostly because FW only is able to read/use exported files which are called “.xbExport” while native Exhibeo files are “.exhibeo” files.
Unfortunately, Exhibeo cannot import it’s own .xbExport files - so if you want to alter an existing gallery from this file (without the original Exhibeo document file) - you’re out of luck.
One can extract the images out of a .xbExhibeo files by going -
With this one could reconstruct the gallery in Exhibeo - though it may be difficult to exactly match all the parameters originally used.
The feature request part of this of course would be to provide the secret ingredients into either a proposed future Exhibeo readable “.xbExport2” file type - (or allow FW to actually read the native .exhibeo format) - so one could freely move back and forth in/out of FW and Exhibeo from the exported files - thus taking the guess work out of rebuilding.
Yes, in most cases the user should still have kept their original .exhibeo files and go back and edit from there and then re-export back to FW. But that’s not always the case - and a format that’s fully usable/readable on both ends would just be a nice thing.
