Title: Can't Open TB 5 file in Demo Version
Post by MichaelB on Jun 1st, 2014, 12:26pm

Hi,

I have a 2.5 MB TB5 file that won't open in TB6  demo version.  I've just bought TB6 and expect I'll get my registration code tomorrow.  I just want to make sure that the inability to open is due to demo restrictions and not to the fact I can't open it at all, since it's my daily day book TB file.

Thanks

My main working-notes file in TB5 was a little larger than that. I use it now in TB6 with no problems, fwiw.

I't won't be size - I use files larger.  I'll wager it's some XML weirdness - this normally occurs from pasting in rich (styled) content from other apps that send badly encoded data via the clipboard.

I've been using TB6 since the alpha stage and have lost no data. Fear not, However, Eastgate will probably need to take a look at your TBX fie.

If your Tinderbox files are very old, you might not be using the .tbx file extension.  If not, simply add it in Finder. (When Tinderbox 1 was written, we had no file extensions.)

Do backup your old files -- even more emphatically when, as here, things seem to be complicated.
