Hi.
In my workshop I currently use SignLab 9.1 on Windows 7 and also SignLab 5.3 on Windows XP
I recently had to do a clean install of Windows XP and re-installed Signlab.
I am unable to open 9.1 CDL work files in 5.3.
Are they not backward compatible ?
I can use 5.3 CDL files in 9.1 without a problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The files are not backward compatible. Forwards yes, but back no. Your best option to get them into SL5 would be to export as EPS or AI, but I do not have an install of 5 I can test with so cannot be sure what will work best.
