When I try to open the voodoo pad, a window pops up saying "My name of voodoo pad.vpdoc" needs to be upgraded. There is no button to upgrade, just "cancel", "skip backup", and "backup". When I click "backup" nothing happens. How do I upgrade? Do I need to pay again?

    Hi Jamie,

    Thanks for posting. Are you attempting to open a VoodooPad document that was created using an older version of VoodooPad? Have you been able to open this document in the past? Which version of VoodooPad are you running (e.g. 5.2.3)?
