Default Opening PPX6 files in PPX7

Hello,

I couldn't find this anywhere. I upgraded to X7 from PPX6. When I open the publication, it automatically opens in Landscape orientation. If I flip the orientation, the page doesn't fit in the frame, and I lose all formatting. Is X7 compatible with X6? Is there anything I am missing? Thank you all Seriff purveyors of knowledge.

Yes, X6 and X7 are entirely compatible. Files should open the same in both. The publication will open with the same orientation that it was saved with. What exactly do you mean by "the page doesn't fit in the frame"? Pages don't fit in frames, frames fit on pages. Please clarify, and attach the problem file if you can.

Please give us some more detail about the page setup of your document. Is it in regular portrait format, or is it a folded publication? What is the page size? Are you opening a PagePlus Project (*.ppp) file, not a PDF file?

It is not folded, regular booklet publication. 17 x 11. I used it many times in the other program. Another person along with myself had an issue with it opening in X& as landscape. If I change it to portrait in X7, the formatting goes out of order. Does that make any sense?

When rotated, the format doesn't fit on the template anymore.

Well, sort of! Although it isn't a folded publication in the sense of being a side-fold card or a tri-fold, if it's a booklet it's going to have landscape sheets folded to give you portrait pages.

As Geoff indicated, attaching the problem file would be helpful.
