Hello, I am wondering if it is possible to save so that a client who has ver 8.1 can also open and edit the file. Thanks, Josh Cahoon

This inability for Revit to do this is absolute crap!!!! I know if you subscribe you automatically receive the update versions, (our company does subscribe). However, we have had an occasion where another firm does not subscribe and therefore we were unable to send our version 9 files to them. The only reason I can think of as to why Autodesk decided upon this "feature" is to force people to buy subscription, a little unethical and bordering on blackmail, in my opinion!!!!

um... why would you want a client to edit the file anyway? you're the one designing/documenting - the client just needs to read the thing!

O.K, forget the client part, they just pay the bills. How about consultants? If my consultants cannot use the file it is of little use...

I never said it was the client we were wanting to send drawings to, it was other subconsultants!!!!! We usually try and help each other the best we can to ensure the project proceeds without too many hold ups. Makes sense, don't you think to keep the client happy???
