Adobe Fireworks cs4 and cs5 file compatibility

Right now we have two users with Fireworks CS4 and one user with Fireworks 8.  The problem is that when the CS4 users open up a fireworks 8 file, they are prompted to maintain appearance or update text. So we are going to upgrade the fireworks 8 user.

If that user gets Fireworks CS5, will we have a similar problem between CS4 and CS5 versions? Or are the file formats identical\fully compatible?

There was a major format change between Fireworks 8 and the CS versions involving the text engine and the way that it formatted text. You should not see those differences between CS4 and CS5.

That's what I figured but I just wanted to make sure there weren't any other differences in the file format that would cause a similar issue.  Hopefully just the APP changed and the file format is the same.

I have the same issue where I work. I am constantly opening up old files and getting the annoying "refresh text" screen because the last time I looked at the file I didn't save it and it reverted back to the original.

Kind of like finding a pen that doesn't write and throwing it back in the drawer.
