2014/2013 Library compatibilty

Recommended Posts

I've just updated to 2014 form 2013 and have a rather annoying niggle i need to try and get round.

A lot of my custom symbols are archived in VW 2013 files, when i try to open the files in Resource Browser i get the message 'The following files were saved using an older version of Vectorworks and therefore could not be added to the list of favourites'

Is there a way to stop this or am i going to have to create a new version of every file in my library?

Open the file where your symbols are located using VW2014 and "save as" a file in VW2014 version to your favorites folder for 2014.

Add the new file to your favorites in the resource browser.

I don't know if this is the most efficient way, but it works.
