Verson to Verson

I am currently runnin '07 while others around me are running '06. If I open a drawing and save it, other people can open it in '06 but cannot use any cogo commands (i.e. insert points or label lines). I then have to export the drawing to Autocad '04 verson and any points that are currently in the drawing have to be reinserted.

I have tried an unistall / reinstall several time but there is no difference. I also have the drawing save as set to 2004 but that does not work either.

Anyone have suggestions?

Nothing you can do, it's by design: with every DWG format change there is a change in the code for custom objects in the version you use too.

If you need to share content with 2006 users, either you need to be in 2006 and use only 2006, or they need to upgrade to 2007.
