Label Favorites not transferable to new version

sknsnw9

I upgraded my template from 25 to 26 and now just noticed my labels has all been switched to default of text/autotext - zone name.  For some reason I'm not able to import my label favorites from 25 to 26.  It says not compatible since I was pulling it from 25 version.  I had no issues with other favorites, such as walls, floors, etc.

 

Is there another way to import it in instead of fixing each labels?

That’s odd. My template file transferred the labels from 25-26 without issue. How did you transfer your template file? I simply just opened mine in AC26 and then saved a copy. 

You won’t be able to transfer Favourites from AC25 to AC26 without first saving the AC25 file in AC26 format. 

the only thing I can think would cause this is if the labels links to Properties or Expressions that no longer exist in the new AC26 file. If you just opened your existing file in 26 then these should nave transferred as part of the Classifications too.

I was able to get it.  Didn't think to try opening the template in 26 then save the favorites in that version.  Thanks!
