BookSmart

opening a .book file

I made my first book on another computer. I have the file saved as "Suginami.book" and in the past other have been able to open that file in their own versions of Book Smart on their own computers.

 Now I’m working on a new computer and am unable to open my file in Book Smart.

 Any and all ideas appreciated.

Thanks.

Did you backup the file? If so, did you transfer all files from the old to new computer? If you did you should be able to import  the backup file.

What if we didn’t back-up the book? It is a BOOK file and I can’t open it up, but i didn’t back it up before. How do I open up the BOOK file on the newer version please?
