That answer isn't satisfactory. All new software contains new 'features' that the previous version didn't have. Revit's content isn't new per version.
They should at least let us use an "export to previous version" tool and let us choose to update OR NOT an existing file where we will do only some basic changes !
I'm the only one to work on Revit 2011 and Civil 3D 2011 in my company ! everybody else is on Acad with different Releases licenses (from LT2000 to 2011)
So when I make something in Civil that I've to give to someone else, I HAVE to export it from civil to ACAD otherwise they will only see a dumby empty dwg
When I'm in Revit 2011 I can't event export my 2011 rvt to a dumber 2010 rvt with some massing elements or open a subcontractor's RVT2010 file, move some walls, without converting it to 2011and making it unopenable for them... that's realy silly IMHO !
At least the latest version should be able to open, edit, and save back a project created in a previous version. So now if consultant A has Revit 2008, consultant B has Revit 2009, and consultant C has Revit 2010, they can't work together at all? OK, they could all upgrade to 2011, but then they would lose the ability to work with anyone who uses a previous version. What's the solution, besides having a license for every release?
