G4, MacOS 9.1 and Freehand 9


I have a problem running Macromedia Freehand 9 on MacOS 9.1.
Picture refreshing in documents takes incredible long time.
On MacOS 8.6 I have no such problems. Where is the problem?.In OS or in Freehand 9?.

Thanks for an answer.


RE: G4, MacOS 9.1 and Freehand 9

You could try turning off High-Resolution Umage display in the Preferences\redraw window.

How ever 9.1 might be taking just that little bit more memory up. Therefore not leaving Freehand enough.

Can you give Freehand more memory ??

Good Luck

RE: G4, MacOS 9.1 and Freehand 9

Thanks for an answer. I already did all those things. I know Freehand pretty good. The problem must be somewhere else. Refresh of an 1 MB image take about 20 seconds!! And something else is strange. There is NO problem with SOME pictures (some TIFF'S have problems, some not, some EPS'S have problems, some not). I didn't notice any pattern. I don't have ANY problems on OS 8.6.


RE: G4, MacOS 9.1 and Freehand 9

Have you tryed the 9.0.1 update ?

RE: G4, MacOS 9.1 and Freehand 9

I have 9.0.1 already.

I will try to contact Macromedia. Thank you for your answers.

Have a nice day.
