The version number reports what CIMPLICITY release the format of the CimEdit  file was saved in.

When the Version number is in red, e.g. ,  the CimEdit file you are working with was created in an earlier CIMPLICITY release. If you save the file, it will be upgraded to the CIMPLICITY version you are working in; the file format version number in the status bar will increase.

As a result, the saved CimEdit file may not work if you try to use it on systems that still use an earlier version of CIMPLICITY. If you want to save the file, it is recommended that you save it to a different name to create a separate upgraded file.
