Call "Export to Vectorworks 201x" from VS?

Recommended Posts

In the English (American) version 


DoMenuTextByName('Export Previous File Version',1);

DoMenuTextByName('Export Previous File Version',1);

Exports a 2018 file from a 2019 document.  Increment the 1 for older versions.


I don't know if you need to use localized strings for the chunk name or not.

Thank you very much. That did it for me. It seems that 'Export Previous File Version' is the universal name, so I did not need to translate it.


I hope that it can help the German user too.
