Opening old file in new version

Postby ram.kulkarni » Sun Nov 25, 2018 2:18 pm

I had created a figure in older version of Inkscape (don't remember which) on old laptop which is no more. I'm trying to open the same file in my new laptop with latest Inkscape (0.92). I'm getting the following message which doesn't make much sense to me. However, whatever option I choose, the figure isn't exactly the same (fortunately I had PDF version of the earlier figure). Ends of the text are going onto the objects; plus, font is also changing. Any remedy to open the file so that nothing would appear to have changed?
Many thanks

Do you have that font installed on the new computer? The I, 6, 2, 3, and 5 seem slighly different. Maybe the font spacing or kerning is also different?

It's definitely a different font. Please install it, then try again.
