If the map was created with an earlier OCAD version, you will be asked if you want to convert it to the OCAD 11 format. If you answer No then the map will not be opened.

Hint.jpg Do not use this command to restore a backup copy from a floppy disk created with the Backup command. Use the Restore command instead for this purpose

Hint.jpg The error message "This OCAD version is not yet supported" appears if the file is an OCAD file from a higher OCAD version.

Hint.jpg The error message "Format not correct" appears if the file is either damaged or not an OCAD file.

Hint.jpg The Fonts Not Found dialog box appears if the map contains one or more fonts that are not installed on the PC. Probably the map was created on another PC. You must install the missing fonts in Windows or select other fonts. Otherwise another font is used for the missing fonts.
