This is likely to be a typical Newbie issue but how do you get FZ7 to open FZ6 files? Every time I attempt to open my existing files FZ7 only opens the drafting components. I want the 3D models. The manual has NOTHING on opening previous files.

Hi Phil,

Welcome to the forum!

If a project has both Modeling and Drafting information, only one set of data is currently being opened. If you open the file in formZ 6, close the type of window you do not want (so you only have a Modeling Window open for the project), save it, and then open it in formZ 7, you will get what you want.

The next update will automatically open two separate document windows -- one for each set of data, so this step will only be necessary for another week or two...
