New here and wondering…I have been using Sketchup16 up till now and today a friend gifted me Sketchup18. My question is, will everything I created in the past on 16 still show up on 18 for me to continue to work on them? Or will I have to start over again from scratch?
Short answer - yes.
SU has very high backward compatibility. If for any reason you need to keep using SU 2016 as well, SU 2018 can 'Save As… ’ any previous version. You might for example have SU 2018 on your desktop, and 2016 on a laptop if the latter can’t run versions later than 2016 because of inadequate graphics card or drivers.
Plus, other than to conserve disk space it is not necessary to uninstall 2016 when you install 2018. Multiple versions can coexist on the same computer.
Awesome! I had to ask because the last time I did an update I was getting messages that I could not and had to start all my projects all over.
