    Availor, this may not be a bug!

    Remember that if your Pro file uses any of the new features not found in Xtreme, it would'nt know what to do with the file!

    Now if Pro could not open a file created in Xtreme, that would be scary!

    I stated this as a bug because Xara Xtreme is still availible, accordingly to what Antony and Charels said. Anyway, I have a problem now, since I have 5 days left until the trial is over, and I have many multipage files. Good thing Ican still install it on my laptop to extend the trial period

    Seems fair enough to me. Should older software be able to open files generated by newer software?

    Actually that may be a bug after all; The file format that Xara uses is supposed to allow extensions to the file format, so that if there's any data in there that it doesn't understand, it just gets ignored.

    All of the Pro files that I've attempted to open in regular Xtreme have opened fine, but with a warning about ignoring unknown data for "flash properties", for example.

    Of course, that being said, I could imagine a situation in which multi-page data was stored in such a way that Xtreme would just ignore the whole shebang, so nothing would appear when you open the file. So you never know.
    This signature would be seven words long if it was six words shorter.

    The original TIFF file I used is here.
    Jon how did you enhance that photo in xara!
    I think the xara side looks much better.
    Especially the screen!

    I believe that Availor meant that he is received the error message, not that the file fails to open at all.

    I made a couple of tests, one opening an Xtreme Pro flash animation file with Xtreme. And a second opening an Xtreme Pro 3 page text .xar file using Xtreme.

    Odd, that the error message for the multiple page .xar also mentions Flash

    The first image is the error I received when opening the flash animation file. The second is the error I received opening the multiple page .xar file.

    Xara Xtreme opened the first page of the multiple page file created in Xtreme Pro.

    You should certainly be able to load Pro files into older versions, even CorelXARA, but you will get warnings that the file contains new stuff that will be ignored. Sorry for the techo-gibberish message, that will be made for user-friendly in future releases.

    But I still can't open the file, after the message I get plain new document instead of loading my file, so this is a bug, isn't it?
