Are you aware that you can install 1.3.8 and run it alongside
Installing 1.3.8 does not remove, so you can launch either one
independently. I recommend you install 1.3.8 and take it for a spin. It
has lots of new features and might solve your problems. 

But, because 1.3.8 is still not officially a stable version, save often.
Also, use Windows Explorer to make a copy of the files you created in before opening them in 1.3.8. Version 1.3.8 can open
files, but not the other way around. And 1.3.8 has an autosave feature
that might overwrite your file, making it impossible to open
it in So make a copy of the file and open the copy
in 1.3.8, just to be safe.
