    Question save to earlier version

    Is it possible to open Revit file from Revit 7 in Revit 6? Or can we save as file in Revit 7 to Revit 6? What if our client still use the earlier version?

    No. You can't do either. Tell the client to upgrade.

    Alas, and sighs, no!
    I asked the same questions a while ago. This is something that similar programmes do also (e.g. ArchiCAD)

    But.... I understand there are significant problems saving Archicad library parts from 9 to 8, in many instances .....

    That and the development time involved to get it right, are one of the chief reasons why Revit has not committed resorces to this issue. Also, historically, Revit users adopt new releases early in the cycle. ( cos' they're packed full of irrestible goodies ! )

    HI, BG,

    I think you misunderstood me, mate. (Although that is quite easy to do). What I meant was that I understand ArchiCAD is the same in that you can't save down to earlier versions.....after reading your post, are they trying to overcome that?
