Transferring SoftPlan Drawings and
related project files to SoftPlan 2012
Drawings from earlier versions can be moved to SoftPlan 2012 by copying folders from the
SoftPlan14\Projects.spf folder and pasting them into the SoftPlan2012\Projects.spf folder.
Upon opening a Version 14 project folder in SoftPlan 2012, a Project File with an extension of *.spp
is automatically created.
In SoftPlan 2012, open the Project File to gain access to all of the related drawings, views, and
material reports directly from the new Navigation Window.
