Hi Matt,

I have looked through the forum but cannot find an answer for this.

I have an old-format Aeon file that I have not opened since the end of August. If I try to open it I get the "must be converted dialog", but when I click the Update button, nothing happens. I have had no trouble converting several other files.

Any ideas?

Very sorry for the delayed response to this. I had an extremely busy last week.

Can you please send the file to me: support (at) scribblecode (dot) com

I will take a look at it, and if necessary, send you a converted file.

There are a few things that have happened to old files going through all the old betas that occasionally cause problems, where the file is technically incorrect but hasn't been a problem until trying to convert it.

I am fixing these up as I find them, but each time is often different.

[EDITED TO ADD: I just fixed a file for someone else, and I expect it may be the same cause. If you send yours through to me as well, I will verify that is the problem, and then send you back a corrected version, as well as upload a new release that will work automatically for anyone else - but I might as well confirm it is the same problem first.]
