File format compatability

Recommended Posts

I have CA 2018 and my GC has the current version.  I have tried exporting my plans to him and he says he can open them but can't work on them.  Will the current version not accept 2018 files?  Did the format change somewhere along the way?  THanks.

Do you have Home Designer? What Title -- Suite, Pro etc.

 

What product does your GC have -- Title and Year.

Chief Premier Version X12 (22) can open most older files but once opened and saved in X12 YOU, could then no longer edit ( change ) them in your older version. Chief and Home Designer titles only work in a two-way fashion if they are the same year of release.

It MAY be the way you are exporting the files (tell me how you have been sharing them to date, exactly what steps did you take to attach them to an email?)
