I have been using progeCAD 2008 Smart for some time now, for entirely private use, as a means of teaching myself CAD. Now that the learning curve has started to level off I am considering purchasing progeCAD 2013. If I do so will files which have been created on Smart cause a problem when used with the full version? What are the implications for someone using AutoCAD 2012 opening my 'Smart' files? I understand that the free 'student' version of AutoCAD infects the full version with the watermark.

Thanks for the reply.
I should have thought about downloding the 30 day trial!
I could test what happens with the watermark when opening a progeCAD Smart .dwg in AutoCAD the same way but if you have an answer to this issue I would be most grateful.
