Will 11.5 upgrade mess up my workspace?

Recommended Posts

I am currently running Vectorworks 11. I have customised my workspace to include third party add on tools and menus. Will upgrading to version 11.1, then 11.5 destroy my customised workspace?

If so, can I back it up and restore?

Major upgrades will (eg. 11 to 12) over-write the existing workspaces. I can't remember if 11.1 to 11.5 did. To be sure, make a copy of your Workspace Folder with the custom workspaces to another location on your computer. After the upgrade, copy any custom workspaces back into VW's Workspace Folder.

I would do the same with the Plug-Ins Folder. You may have to copy some of the Third Party Plug-ins back into the Plug-Ins Folder. Again, it depends on what changes the upgrade makes.
