Create/Open a Project

You can create a new Ple4Win project from scratch or import Ple4Win data from another (secondary) Ple4Win project or Excel file.

Ple4Win automatically converts old project files from previous Ple4Win versions when you open them. On the other hand, converting old PLE-micro-CAD (PLE3) projects has to be performed manually. Use the stand-alone converter program Project324 to convert PLE3 project files.

Changes of course cannot be saved, but "Save as ..." is an option.

It is also possible to select a project from the recent projects list in the File menu. The number of last opened projects can be defined in the program options (default is 5). Open the File menu and simply select a project from the list:
