Compatibility Breaks

Between some versions there may be compatibility breaks resulting in some data not being able to be used in one version after it has been used in another.

Between Description
Novapoint 21 Quadri for Windows 2020 / Novapoint 2020 Users should be aware that tasks (such as the Road task) in Novapoint 2020 (QfW 2020), can re-use result features when they are re-run. If this model is then shared with a Novapoint 21 user, and they re-run the same task, the task will delete and replace the result features with new objects.
This means that any dependent tasks that use the result features (such as a cross section view) as input will be invalid.
Users should be very careful when mixing usage of Novapoint 21 and Novapoint 22 on the same project, as this can cause result features to be replaced when tasks are re-run in Novapoint 21.
Thus any tasks that depend on the replaced result objects will become invalid.
Best practices:
1. Do not create an input query by using selection in a window.
2. Avoid creating queries in the dynamic query dialogue that drill down to instance selection.
