Is it possible to open files created with SHAPE‑THIN in the previous program versions, such as SHAPE‑THIN 7?


The files created with SHAPE‑THIN 8 cannot be opened in the previous program versions, such as SHAPE‑THIN 7. In SHAPE‑THIN 8, you cannot save files in the file format that can be read by the previous versions, such as SHAPE‑THIN 7.

However, it is possible to export the input data to Excel in SHAPE‑THIN 8 (Figure 01) and import them into SHAPE‑THIN 7 after adjusting the column arrangement. This is also shown in the video.
