Convert from Civil3D 2013 to 2012

Is there anyway to go back to 2012 once you've opened a file in 2013?

 

I would like to recover work done in 2013, at least the styles...

 

Is this possible? I've found out that I can export pipe networks to landxml and then import the file in 2012, but I have no styles if I do that...

 

Please help

Once you have saved the file in 2013 format, no, there is no way to get it back to 2012 without re-creating everything manually. AutoCAD is not backwards compatible, only forwards.

 

You might be able to copy the styles, but I havent tried this, so I cant speak to it's effectiveness. Try the Import Styles command under Manage tab, but that may or may not work.

Oops! The 2012 style manager will "open" the 2013 file you want to import from, but the box will be blank.

 

You're not gonna get those styles back without re-creating them or going to your backup and finding the 2012 version.
