If I were to do that I would copy them and then paste them in an X8 folder so that I would always have what was done already in X7 to be able to go back and refer to if needed, just in case something didn't workout when the file was moved over into X8

I simply create an X8 folder and copy the folders I will probably use in X8 from X7.

 

Pretty darn easy.

When you open & save them in X8, they will automatically update but you may have some things to fix and you can't go back, that's why you copy first .

Perry,

 

I am pretty sure that if you open a plan or layout from an older version and save it in a newer version, Chief will automatically save an archived copy in the older version format.

Speaking of archives does anyone every clean out there archives, when I do plans I save to different dates or numbers or final plans, is it a good idea to delete the ones that are archived but not being used to get more space
