Moving Plan Set Pages to another Set?
SoftPlan Version:
2016 Plus

So.... i had the problem with Softplan losing some of my Plan Set Pages in my project.

Now i have atleast found a way to open those missing plan files within the project.
(i have had to recover my C:Drive and find the Recovery Files Manually)

The question currently,
Is there a way to save those ".pag" files in the Project now?

I have OPENED those .pag files within the project.
But they will not show up on the Navigation Bar (Nothing at all).
They only show up as the normal tabs on the screen.

So im wondering now if i can even edit those plans and etc etc.

Thanks again to Bill W. trying to help me with the problem before.

I hope you can help me this time as well :)

Thanks in advanced

page files

Page files are special files that define the various pages in the Plan Set. In order for SoftPlan to know where the page files are they have to have been created within the current project. The Project file maintains all the information about the various Plan Sets and Pages. You can not simply copy a .pag file into a project and have it do anything. Once a page has been deleted it is also deleted from within the Project file. So you can not simply copy a .pag file even from a recovery folder and expect it to do anything. You must recreate any pages that have been deleted once they have also been deleted from within the Project file.

Plan Sets

One thing to remember regarding Plan Sets is that they are saved in and controlled by the Project file. If you were to create plan sets and then later delete the Project file you would end up with orphan .pag files. The same would be true if you went into the Recovery folder and take an old Project file that was from before the Plan Sets were created and copy it over your Project file from after the Plan Sets were created. The old Project File would not have the information that was stored when the Plan Sets were created.
