Rollback to version 1

Recommended Posts

No, but if you work on COPIES of your existing V1 files, then you will always have a back-up.

I have tried this ... with Designer but depends on how you have been working.
You can copy the artboard between V2 > V1. or other layers and objects.
If applied new features in V2 results might be a bit unexpected.

You could also try to export to a different format as PDF or SVG and open it in AD Version 1.

@chessboard's is the pragmatic way to tackle it - assuming you can open and use the version 2 apps at all.

You may find the files are changed on opening, and you might have to recreate some things such as artboard arrangements that I don't think are part of the svg spec for example. It may be the least painful path on balance though.

Until an app has reached version 4, I would suggest always backing up your files, before opening any in the newer version. I know, hindsight is a wonderful thing. I learned the lesson the hard way myself many-many years ago, while technology was still a bit of a 'wild west'. It happens a lot less now, than it did in those days - though that's no consolation to you. It's painful, and I'm sorry you didn't know. Keep going, these things happen.

Words are crude implements, difficult to get perfect, easy to get tied in knots with, and often - usually - misunderstood, which is why 'tolarence' is the best word of all.

The word "professional" fits us all - amateur, semi-pro, beginner, advanced, middle, beyond it all, and on....., because professionals are tolerant.
