    Revit 2018 U0pgrade

    We are in the process of upgrading to Revit 2018. If we open our office template in 2018 will it still open in a previous version? Does the template file behave the same as an .rvt file?

    if you open your template file, then close it, it will still be in the R2017 version. If you save it, it will be in the R2018 version and you will not be able to open it in R2017. So, in that regard, yes a template file behaves the same as a regular project file.

    edit: IMO the way to handle this situation is to open your R2017 template and do a SaveAs to your R2018 template location. Then you have both versions of the same template file.

      If you use the template like that (for multiple versions) in theory it will work fine, but the user experience will suck. Basically, they will have to wait for it to upgrade every time they start a new project. I dont know how big your template is, but even waiting fifteen seconds for that is damn annoying.
