Save as mathCAD 7 from MathCAD v11

Save as mathCAD 7 from MathCAD v11

Does any else have problems saving mathcad 11 files as v7.

i have an unusual problem, the calculations remain the same however the headers and footers are either deleted or are changed with a random header from a file mathcad has opened in the past!!!! Not very good for QA!

Anyway does anyone have any ideas?


RE: Save as mathCAD 7 from MathCAD v11

According to Mathsoft's version comparison table:
headers/footer formatting was not supported until v2000, so it;s unlikely that header/footer conversion to v7 will result in repeatable results.


RE: Save as mathCAD 7 from MathCAD v11

When I tried it, headers and footers disappeared altogether.

The Mathcad7 User's Guide (don't ask me why I keep these things) has a section on adding headers and footers.  Seems pretty much unchanged with Version 11 except for a different looking dialog box.

When I open an old file last modified in 1998 (not sure which version) that has a footer, it keeps it when I save as Version 7.

RE: Save as mathCAD 7 from MathCAD v11

The older versions had a VERY limited set of footer/header formatting commands.  Very likely that a newer document uses formats that are not compatible with v7.

Something from 1998 would most likely be v7 or v8, which are probably very compatible with each other.


RE: Save as mathCAD 7 from MathCAD v11

does anyone know if there is a way to save a Mathcad v12 files as Mathcad 2000 files.
The impossibility of doing that maybe it's because i am working with a trial version.
Thank you in advance.
