Open project created in one Rapid tool in another Rapid tool (Open As different specification)


It is possible to open previously created projects in any Rapid tool. However, an appropriate specification shall be used.

For example:

            General IPC specification is RapidCatalog compatible.

            General Procedure specification is RapidManual compatible.

If you wish to re–use your Generic IPC project (of RapidCatalog) in RapidManual, then you should:

·         Launch RapidManual;

·         Go to File > Open Project;

·         Find your project (it says Generic IPC by its name);

·         Select it;

·         Click Open As button;

·         Choose Generic Procedure (or any other for RapidManual); and

·         Click OK.

This will remove unrelated to the selected specification features from your project. For example, it will remove DPL table and IPC pages from your Generic IPC in Generic Procedure.

After you have opened the project under a different specification, we would recommend saving it with a different name by going to File > Save Project As

For more information on specifications please refer to RapidManual(RapidLearning).pdf document in (Chapter 4. Basic Commands, Using and Changing Specifications).
