Whoever told you that is completely wrong.

The files produced by DW are just .html, .php, .js, etc. Any program that can read those files, including all versions of DW, reads them.

Certain, specific functionality can be lost. In the case of things like .DWT Templates, since a totally different program doesn't understand the comments DW uses to make editable regions as anything other than normal html comments.

But version to version in DW is no issue at all, aside from using functions that don't exist in the different version. But even in those situations, instead of getting nice dialogue boxes, you would only need to manually update the code.

Because I heard it isn´t possible, and if I cancel my Creative Cloud i will not be able to work on my files, which  I created in CC, in CS 6.

So what is correct?

Thanks for your answers.

Dw files are only html, css, js, sql and server side languages only, and these are usable, (create, read, write, modify) in any code editor, even free ones like VS Code.

Dw, all versions are nothing more than a code editor with a few extra features such as file managment.

But I heard, that if I cancel my CC license, then all files which I created in DW CC can´t be open in my older DW CS 6 application.

So this is not correct??

Thanks for your answers.
