MacFlow 5.x: File Conversion
PROBLEM: When attempting to open a WinFlow document
in MacFlow without success, the RESOURCE of the file may be the
problem. If this is the case, MacFlow is recognizing the WinFlow
document as a standard TEXT file and asks whether you would like to
organize the flowchart into a HIERARCHICAL or GEOMETRIC format. Since
it is not recognized as a flowchart, these are the only options.
SOLUTION: The solution is to change the RESOURCE. This Program
(less than 8K in size) converts a WinFlow 5.x document into a
recognized MacFlow 5.x document by correcting the RESOURCE which was
altered in the Windows environment. To activate the program simply drop
the file on the program icon.

SOLUTION: By changing the DATE format to anything
other than the format which causes problems (shown above) and deleting

error message. Another solution is to upgrade to a complimentary v5.0.1
of MacFlow and WinFlow, contact our support department for details.

palette under Windows NT that can be accessed by double-clicking on a
symbol. When the palette is made visible, it does not take input from
the mouse and may give an error noise when attempting to click upon it.
SOLUTION: This is a known incompatibility with
WinFlow and Microsoft Windows NT and is being addressed. The current
way around this is to use the Link Menu.
