Using Files From Older Versions

Will SU Pro open files created with much older versions, and do I need the internet to use SU Pro

SketchUp will open all earlier versions of files and can also be told to save as an older version. Access to the internet for SketchUp pro is needed only when it checks your license.

Thank you. I guess i will buy the latest SU Pro then. 300 bucks is a little steep for only personal odds and ends, but it beats the heck out of learning a new CAD program from scratch.

I spoke to my SU dealer yesterday and they said it ‘checks up’ via the internet every 28 days at the very least. So in my mind, you can use it online on day 1, and you don’t need an internet connection to validate the licence for another 27 days before it will insist on an internet connection.
