    Convert file back to older SW version??

    Sarah Dwight

      This turned into a two part question:


      So I have both SW15 and SW16 on my computer.

      I opened a drawing in SW16, edited a feature in the part file, and saved it... which converted it to SW16.

      Then I realized it had multiple configurations and other drawings attached to it. Ugh.

      So now when I open the other drawings in SW15... it cannot read the part file as it is a future version. Darn.

      Is there a way to convert a SW16 file back to SW15?


      I tried to find the Autorecover, but since I saved the file it was deleted from my temp folder.... or never created because I had two versions of SW running!

      Does the journal file create the Backup files too??

      I checked my backup folder and nothing I opened today has saved a backup copy.

      Am I not supposed to run multiple versions of SW at the same time?
