         I've created a Scribus file on my Mac at home (intel type).
         When trying to open the file at work on my Windows XP machine
         (via USB
         stick) I get a fatal error message which is something like:
         Cannot read
         the file. Any ideas?
         Thanks, Michael Krück

         About your Scribus program:
         Version: 1.3.7svn
         Prebuilt/Compiled: Prebuilt
         Build Date: 31. May 2008
         Your operating system and CPU:
         Type: MacOS X
         Version: 10.6.4
         CPU type: 32bit (Intel/AMD - i386)

     Hi Michael,

     Try to make sure the versions in the 2 OSes are as close as
     possible. They definitely need to be in the same series.

     I had some files I made with 1.3.6svn that couldn't be opened with but that shouldn't have been the case.

     I found that a workaround was to open it up in a text editor and change

     <SCRIBUSUTF8NEW Version="1.3.6svn">


     <SCRIBUSUTF8NEW Version="">

     This will not work to allow to load a 1.3.5 series file.
