Thanks for the answer. However, I'm not able to open older (ie <CS4) Illustrator files with CS6. I have read about others that have this problem as well, and my impression was that this was intentional from Adobe?
Hmm, I think I have to install OS X10.4 together with FreeHand MX and CS4 on an older Mac.... *sigh*
