This is long overdue.

Agreed. It is so frustrating having different versions of EG in the organisation but no way exchanging projects with earlier versions of EG.


Having a way of fixing the version of an EG project would be good also so it doesn't get automatically upgraded when opened in a later EG version and then made unreadable for the EG version it was originally created with.

These are good suggestions.  


The R&D development team is aware that the different project file versions can cause a hardship when working in an environment with mixed versions of the app.  That's why the 7.1, 7.11, and 7.12 versions all share the same file format.  The file format has been unchanged since October 2014 (when v7.1 was released).


If you have a lot of EG project files, consider "converting" them in batch with the Migration Wizard.  That tool creates a backup copy of all project files that it touches before conversion.

Status changed to: Not Planned

Published workarounds aside, there are currently no plans for a "Save As" previous version feature.
