How do I open an existing FM file from TCS4 test drive?

I'm running the test drive of TCS4 on a Mac so I can evaluate FM11. I have an existing FM file on my Mac that I would like to use for the test. How can I open it?

    TCS4 requires Windows. Are you running bootcamp, parallels, or some other virtualization program?

    Umm, hard to say this without sounding sarcastic, but File > Open...

     

    If double-clicking isn't working, then the menu command should open any version of FM file, whether or not it has an extension.

     

    If you're having trouble "seeing" the drive containing the file, you'll have to either establish access to that drive, or transfer the file via USB, email, or anything else you can think of.

    There's 2 ways of running TCS4 trials - download a copy or play around on Adobe's virtual workspace. I wasn't aware you could upload a local FM file into the latter. Most users grab the download and play around with it on a non-production machine with copies of their docs.

    Interesting...like Jeff I figured you'd dowloaded the trial.

     

    Were you able to open your file into the online test drive?
