Save project to Axure 9 compatible to open with Axure 8


#1

Hi.
Is it possible to save a rp in version 9 of Axure to open in version 8? If so, how is it done?


#2

No, Axure RP9 is not backwards compatible. I’ve not seen any kind of external plugin or translator for this.

This thread has an official response from Axure:

oh no… so if you’ve worked on Axure 8 so far and you want to switch to 9… your whole work got lost?

Hi Dises1982, you can avoid losing work by saving a separate copy of your files as an Axure RP 8 version on your machine, either before opening and saving your files in Axure RP 9; or you can go ahead and open your files in RP 9, then immediately go to “File > Save As”, and save the file with a different name. That way, if you ever need to reference any of your RP 8 files in the future, you’ll still have a copy that’s compatible to be opened with RP 8.
