Opening files from Filemaker 14 on 12
Is it possible to open a Filemaker 14 file on Filemaker 12? ie. do I need to upgrade all computers to Filemaker 14 or can I just upgrade one computer and the rest can still be on 12?
The file formats are exactly the same so systems with 12 can open 14.
But doing so limits you to 12 or older features. Any of the new features introduced in FMP 13 and 14 will not be available to your FMP 12 clients.
So Popovers, Slide controls, button bars, the new navigation layout part will all not work when the file is opened with FMP 12, just to name a few examples.
