Saving FM 6.0 back to 5.0 [was 'RE: Argh! Indexing in FM 6.0']

Acutally, you can save FM 6.0 back to any earlier version, including 3.0,
the first to be released on Mac and Win as well as UNIX.  Just save as MIF,
then re-open in the earlier version.  You will see a terrifying number of
error messages, but they all boil down to "I don't understand this
formatting property so I am ignoring it".  You won't lose any content but
you may lose some layout and formatting, for example, multi columns
consisted of separate text frames prior to version 4.0.
