As you say, this problem will bite us. Sooner than later.
When I first started out, much more recently than you, I was using Dr. Halo's CUT format for knitwear design. In order to use the patterns in other bitmap programs, I figured out how to convert to PCX (and no, it wasn't straightforward, CUT being an odd format). But remember PCX? That was supposed to be a 'universal' bitmap format and now few young people I'll bet have ever heard of it.

I'm wondering if I'll have to put all the family album in video format to play on TV just to have a format that might be a little bit stable. Or should I bite the bullet soon on a very expensive printer and print the hundreds of images so we're back to where we were 100 years ago.
