Can ComicLife 3 Open old ComicLife1 Files?

Karl Bastian Apr 15, 2018 11:31AM AEST

Mac OS 10.13.3 will no longer open ComicLife1 files, if I upgrade to 3 can I open those older files? I have hundreds so I'm really freaking out that I'm going to lose them all!

Hello there Karl.

Thanks for contacting us.

Yes, Comic Life 3 can open Comic Life 1 (.comicdoc files) and Comic Life 2 (.cl2doc and .cl2arc files) via the File > Open menu.

You can download a 30 day trial to test for yourself here:

If you have Comic Life 1 (.comic) files (these are pre-Comic Life 1.3 (pre-circa 2007 created files) you will need to first open them up in Comic Life 1.5.5 (Mac running pre-macOS 10.13) and save them as a .comicdoc file.

If you don’t have access to a Mac running macOS 10.12 or earlier – and have .comic files – then please email us directly for additional help:

Hope this helps,
Mark | plasq
