Sets options for restoring an isometric project from a backup.

Path to Project backup

Type the full path location and filename of the backup isometric project XML file to be restored.

Replace the existing Project

Deletes the contents of the existing isometric project and replaces with the contents of the backup, resulting in a new isometric project. This option is not available if an existing project with the same name does not exist on the target machine.

Update the existing Project

Overwrites the existing isometric project with the backup data. This option maintains the existing folder structure. Project files (or drawing styles) with the same name are updated. Files that are contained within the existing isometric project, but are not part of the backup, are untouched.

Keep backup of the current Project data

Restores the isometric project and simultaneously copies the existing isometric project to a new folder named Project_Backup_n, where Project is the name of the isometric project and n indicates the revision number of the backup, as in PipingProj_Backup_1, PipingProj_Backup_2, and so on. This is the default setting.

Mandatory Styles

Lists the mandatory isometric drawing styles that exist in the project to restore. This option is read-only.

Select Optional Styles to restore

Lists the optional isometric drawing styles that exist in the project to restore. To include an optional style, select its check box. To exclude an optional style, clear its check box.

Include Isogen database connection data

Specifies whether the software imports the Isogen Api Url and Isogen Api Project Id settings of the IsogenDB project to restore. By default, the software excludes both settings. Select this option to save the settings. This option displays only when you are importing an IsogenDB project from backup.


Restores the isometric project.


Closes the dialog box without restoring the isometric project.
