File compatibility

File Open

  • Each Start Edition version opens the files saved by all previous versions of Start Edition.
  • Start Edition does not open files saved by full Archicad versions, except Archicad 8.1 and 9.
  • Archicad full versions open files saved by the corresponding Start Edition version (see the table above) and all earlier Start Edition versions back to Start Edition 2006.
  • Archicad full versions open files saved by previous Archicad full versions back to Archicad 8.1.

File Save

  • Start Edition versions save files of only their own version. This means that earlier versions of Start Edition won't open the file.

Hi,

 

"

  • Archicad full versions open files saved by previous Archicad full versions back to Archicad 8.1.

"

What does Archicad Full Version have to do with STAR(T) version in this sentence?

 

Thank you in advance

I think it is in the list so all 4 possible combinations are covered in the article:

1. START->FULL

2. START->START

3. FULL->START

4. FULL->FULL

 

Didn't find the answer?
