This is an advance warning.

In the next program update 227a I shall be removing the compatibility with BOX files saved prior to version 071a of 27th April 2001. That's 20 years ago.

They will still load, but any shoved-timber data in them will be lost. You may remember that in those days there was a limit of 30 shoved timbers maximum on any given template.

If you still have any 20-year-old BOX files which you want to use (and which contain shoved timbers) please load them into the current version of Templot now and re-save them. You won't be able to do this in 227a.

As far as I can recall this is the first time in the history of Templot that any compatibility with legacy files has been lost, but nothing lasts for ever. :)
