FH11 File - opening and understanding

Did your computer fail to open a FH11 file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .FH11 files.

What is a FH11 file?

A .FH11 file is a Freehand Project file. Files that contain the .fh11 file extension are most commonly associated with the Macromedia FreeHand 11 drawing software program. The FH11 files that are used by this software contain vector images that have been created with the FreeHand program.

FH11 files can contain scalable images, including lines, curves, and points. These elements can be scaled without a loss of the image quality. They are frequently used to create logos, brochures, and other printed materials commonly used for business purposes, such as business cards and letterhead.

FreeHand 11 is no longer supported by Macromedia or Adobe (the company that acquired Macromedia).
