Opening a form created with NiceForm v5 in NiceForm v4


NiceForm v4 will open the forms created in NiceForm v5 until you use some v5 features that are not available in v4. However, the problem might appear with simple forms that do not include any advanced features from v5. You might still see the error problem "Element does not contain a single text node."

NiceForm v4 and v5 use a different XML parser to work with the form data (the .XFF file contains a structure of the form formatted in XML). Some definitions encoded by v5 are not understood by v4.


Open your form file (.XFF file) in the text editor and manually delete the 'and' character (&) from the button definition. This character determines the shortcut letter for the button. You will find the character encoded as &, just delete it.
