[Pro] 6.0 back to 5.5

I need to go back to 5.5 from 6.0. It says it saved a 5.5 file, but I cannot open anything from 5.5. Tried to copy things from my 6.0 pages to the 5.5 file and that didn’t work either. Anyone? THANKS!

When you open a FW5 document in FW6 you get a message that a special backup will be made in the older format. This only happens when you save your document in FW6.

This backup uses the naming format along the lines of “My Web Site[FW5.5].freeway”, and should be in the same local folder as the original file you opened.

I just tried this locally, and it worked just fine. I control-clicked on the FW5.5 file, and chose Freeway 5.6.5 from the menu.

I assume you still have FW5 installed on your Mac. If you double-click the back-up file it will generally open in the most recent version of Freeway you have.

I hope some of that helped.

Cheers

Heather

Yea, that’s what I did. I did get the message that it would save a special
backup… and there is a 5.5 version in there… but it’s from February
25th (my old original).

AND, there is a 6.02 version which is the one that I’ve made some updates
to and tested 6.0.

But, when I try and open the 6.02 version in 5.6 it says it cant…

When I open the 5.6 version it’s my old one…

In other words, there does not appear to be a ‘special saved backup’
version anywhere…?

Freeway Pro 6 makes a special backup of your 5 version file BEFORE you
start working with it in 6 – it DOES NOT save your Pro 6 work BACK into
your 5 version file.
