    Default Problem save file from xar CorelXara

    Dear Sirs, I apologize in advance for the bad English. I have a problem if I open XAR files - created in CorelXara, so they open in Xara designer for 15 but can't save. There is also a small problem with the script. It used to work OK for me, but now I can't save it.
    A sample file is attached.

    Copy it but I have a lot of old files. Previously it was normal to just save, now since version 15 it reports an error.
    I need a browser for old xar files, new versions can't display them.

    I could open your sample file in version designer pro 15.1 and select/copy/paste to new blank ver 15.1 file and then save without the access error

    But the thumbnails are not visible in windows 10 file explorer, that is another issue I think

    The Save option is disabled until you make a change.
    Save As is available.

    If you make a change and Save, you get a message:
    This file is a corelXara 1.1 format document. Do you want to overwrite it with the Xara X format or "Save as" a different name?
    I would choose Save As to preserve the old file as a master (just in case).

    You then get a Continue/Quit (serious error) if you Preview as the text line is all mangled together with 0H & 0W. "Image CORELXARA 1.2" can be read if you select and drag its width or just press Ctrl+A & Ctrl+C.

    To recover everything, open a New Document and Paste the copied old one into it and Save.

    the thumbnail will be visible in the new file once saved..

    I don't know of a file viewer that will specifically view the old format

    yes I noticed the save as routine but I dont see it has any advantage over just copy out and save in a new document in the first place ?

    I can open/save via overwriting without problems in XP&GD 16.

    Spamiky, a Preview of your CorelXARA file fails when opened in a browser so you will have to load up each old file, copy into a blank file and save that.

    You could trying Expandxar.exe; this is a zipped command line utility that might unpack your CorelXARA 1.1/1.2 files for use in Xara v15. Again, each file needs to be saved as a new one.
