Version 12.5 with 2008

Recommended Posts

VW2008 is a different file format than VW12 and earlier. You can save VW2008 down to v12 or earlier, but you can not simply open the .vwx in VW12.5.

As with all previous version of VectorWorks and even MiniCAD, if the file is created in the newer version contains objects/tools that are specific to that newer version, they will not work the same way when saved to an earlier version.

For example, the Ellicott Heights project extensively uses Design Layer Viewports (DLVPs). This technology is unique to VW2008. Saving this file back to v12 converts the DLVPs into Workgroup References (WGRs).

The Alexandria Lofts file SHOULD export back OK for the most part, it was originally done in v12. But, I can send you those v12 files, if you'd like. Just drop me an email message (jouellette@nemetschek.net) and I'll get them to you.
