I have time for experiments ... I have set up an FM-14 document with text features introduced in various versions.
Then I saved to an older FM-version using my script Save FM document or book in older version I wanted to be certain whether the user gets strange messages when he/she opens the saved document in the older FM version. It turns out that everything works silently - there are no messages in the console log and no open messages. There seem to be a magic tag on these features for FM to be able to strip them out when saving to an older version. I assume this, because the file sizes differ: Original FM-14 73'728 saved as FM-10 67'584 saved as FM-09 68'608 Until now I assumed that the "save as old" process just saves and indicates an old version and only the open process in the old FM-version skips unknown stuff - as it done with the MIFs. Is this a completely wrong assumption/interpretation of the process? If my findings are solid: It should be easy for Adobe to allow "Save as old" down to FM-8 similar to my script (Thats the Unidoce 'border'). What is (might be) the reason to just save 'down' one version?
