I've just upgraded and if I try to open a show made with 6.0.2 I get an error message saying bad numeric value on line 4091, offending item: -nan; File version; 6.0.2. Does this mean versions are not backwards compatible?


Please send the show file to support@dataton.com.


Shows made with 6.0.x should definately be able to open in 6.1.x, but after saving it there you can not go back to 6.0.x.
