Macros after update
I just updated to version 4.5 and all my user macros have disappeared. How can I get them back. It was a large library and I would rather not have to design them all again.

You should still have your library file, which is named UserMacros.fml
Are you using Mac? It looks like the path has changed from
This is the Windows path:
You can import a macro file into FPD with Edit->Settings ->Interface->Macro files... Or you move the fml file into above mentioned path.
Please let me know if it worked. If not I need to know what OS you are using. I apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your feedback.

I found the macro.fml file BUT any attempt to attach it to Front designer gets this rejection....Macro object database error macro objects are not available(26:SQLITE_NOTADB: file is encrypted or is not a data base
This is the same message that I get when I launch front Designer

I just emailed you the previous version FPD4.4. Please use this until we have the bug fixed.
I apologize for the trouble and thank you for your patience.

version 4.4 gave me the same message. I located the macro data base file and tried to import it with no luck. I copied a macro from another .fpd file and pasted it into a new design successfully but could not save it into the user macro list.

Hello again. I have the same problem as Ron Cass. Any chance you can email me version FPD4.4 too?
