ACT 2010 Windows 7

I am using a 30 day trial download of ACT 2010 for my Windows 7 computer. I converted an ACT 6.0 database to ACT 2010. There are only 2 layouts available and no colors for the background of the Contacts Detailed view. Is this just in the demo or is the full version the same? If anyone knows I would appreciate  a response.

 

Thank you.

The demo version is the full version with atime limit. You have the option of converting your ACT! 6 layouts of designing new ones.

In ACT! 6 the l;ayouts weren't part of the database, they were in a folder common to all databases.

Thanks for the information but I can't find how to import the ACT 6.0 layouts. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

There are too many variables to offer any meaningfull suggestions. They may have been included in the backup or they may still be on the ole system and subject to the configuration of that system.

Thanks again. I may repost this question or look for an answer online. I see all the previous versions folders but can't open them up. I'm guessing the folder is called layouts.
