    I get frustrated enough when I have to work on a 2018 project!

    The next pause is conformed documents as we are in CA now. There are 11 volumes of drawings (2700 +/- sheets), including consultants documents, that would have to be gone through and correct all of the text wrapping issues once upgraded. There is no fee for fixing text errors do to a software upgrade.

    The fee is covered by spending less time waiting for the software to do EVERYTHING else ALL THE TIME... It's like a slow leak in a pool. The water bill keeps rising but you can't see where the leak is.

    I'm currently working on a 2016 project that has about 18 months to run, is it worth upgrading to 2017 or just sticking with it? What are the issues with upgrading?

    I honestly dont know why you would bother upgrading it to 2017, when you can just upgrade it to 2019.

    We have had other consultants and sub-contractors saying that they have used families that arent currently compatible with 2018/2019

    We upgrade EVERY active project to the latest version if it's got more than 3 months left before issuing.
    I occasionally have to browbeat a consultant or two into it, but in the 12 years we've been doing this, I've only had a couple of files break.

    unfortunately we arent in a position to browbeat anyone, the client and main contractor are above us in the food chain and the MC is reluctant to cause sub-contractors any more work as they will charge them for it. the client has nothing written in the BEP (unlike more recent ones) which states that the model MUST be updated.

    oops, someone opened and saved in 2018/19/20, I guess everyone else needs to update.
    or
    stay in 2016
