Can ArtPro 12 files be opened in ArtPro 7.5 or older?


No, files generated by ArtPro 8.x and newer cannot be opened in a version older than ArtPro 8.0, as the file format was changed in ArtPro 8.0.

However, there is an option in ArtPro to save your file to ArtPro 7.5, 7.0, 6.5 or 6.0.

  1. Go to File > Save A Copy As....
  2. Select the required version in the Compatibility drop down list.

This method is not recommended, as jobs usually need to be flattened, which is never a good idea.

We can not save to versions lower than 6.0 any more!
