    Anyone using Freehand 10 in Snow Leopard?

    I know that various older versions of FH won't run, but I can't find reports of the specific version I have: FH10.

    (I have tons of important logo artwork in that format, and Illustrator's support for FH files is miserable. I will have Rosetta installed of course.)

    That's a yes!

    Freehand MX (IIRC) does not work in Snow Leopard, but FH10 does :) In fact, it runs better than ever: an old bug upon quitting the app seems to be gone.

    I also use FH 10 with much satisfaction on Snow. I had problems with fonts not appearing in Freehand, but it was a font-locking issue of Snow, which has to be shut off with a sudo in terminal.
    Amazing how this 10 year old program still gives me the greatest vector design productivity.
