    be nice...

    First post, so be nice!

    Very new student to Revit 2012 Arch...

    I love the forum and I'm sure I will be able to improve with time, and learn a few tricks... thanks in advance.

    I am in the process of modeling my home as a practice project. I was contemplating the truss issue in my raised ceiling living room and went to the forum for help...found a helpful post, including a .rvt file....BUT unable to use it or look at it because it's in 2013 format...

    Is there a way to overcome this?

    Install a trial version of 2013 so you can see how it works, then recreate it in 2012? Unlike that *other* software program, Revit is not backwards compatible so you can't "save back" to 2012.

    PS - Welcome. I love it here!

    Sounds like I am SOL for an easy fix...I'm going to muddle through with the intent of actually doing the time to learn how to do it. Of course, I did see a fine framing extension available to subscribers. what does that cost? That would be nice, but I need to learn the old-fashion way anywho.
    Thanks for the response, Cadiva.
