I was wondering if there was a way to share files with a draftsman who has Chief Architect X5 and I have Chief Architect Interiors 6. I would have thought he could open my files since he as a more complex version, but the one upgrade prevents that. Any options on my end to save as a lesser version?

Unfortunately no. Unless you have Interiors X5 and created the plan in that version.

      We're a small design firm and are trying to figure out the best way to share drafting tasks.  How do you share roles in your business?  We all work from our own computers and have been transferring drawing information with flash drives.  Sometimes all the information doesn't always get included.  This also seems a bit redundant.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
       
      Thank you.
