I recently heard from a colleague that this was not much of an issue any more. I am hesitant to try it but wondered if anybody on here has effectively been doing this?

If you edit in FCP 6, you can open the project in FCP 7 fine....it just updates it. Want to send it back to FCP 6? Just export an XML, version 4, then import that XML in FCP 6. Works fine. Been doing it for 5 months now.

I tried the XML import from 7 to 6 and it kept asking me to choose a translation document. Any ideas?

You don't go FILE>IMPORT FILE....CMD-I. You need to go to FILE>IMPORT and in that list choose XML.
