Backward Compatibility from 6.2 to 6


I’m having an issue whereby Visual Paradigm projects saved in version 6.2 are unable to be opened in 6. Is this normal behaviour? If it is then is it possible to save a file as a v6 project from with 6.2? I can’t see how to but may be missing something obvious.

Any help would be much appreciated,


Hi Ben,

Sorry for my late reply. We are sorry that our projects are not backward-compatible, you cannot open newer version project with an older version product. And you cannot save the project as an older version project.

You can try export the newer version project as XML file and then import it back in a older version product, but the results are not guaranteed since there are new and enhanced features in newer version.

If there is any further inquiry, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best regards,
Lilian Wong
