Can I connect multiple years of VW to the same data library folders or is it better practice to keep them separate?

Recommended Posts

2022 is the first year I'm migrating upward.

So far it's been a bit nerve racking - but I think I've gotten things settled down a bit.


I used the migration manager to copy all my plant files to a VW2022 specific folder (I named it "Vectorworks Data 2022/Libraries" - I'm very creative!).

I keep all my data on a separate D:/ hard drive from my operating system - so it's not on C:/ where VW put it on install.


But a question came up today as I edited one of my plant objects.

I saved the changes to my personal plant library files in my 'Vectorworks Data/Library' folder.

...now I have an outdated Prunus laurocerasus 'NANA' file in my 2022 folder.


I will probably have brought all my projects over to 2022 in a month or so:

Should I just keep good 'change notes' and keep everything separate?

Or should I move my plant libraries to a discrete folder and point all instances of VW at that folder.

And can I even do that?
