After this most recent software update, you will see a link in the original TT ADL canvas inviting you you to try the new ADL.
Clicking this link opens the new ADL canvas in place of the existing canvas. From then on, starting ADL will open the new ADL canvas. If you want to revert to the original ADL canvas, you can select the Go back to original ADL link.
The new ADL canvas uses a different format for storing algos. Therefore, any algos created with the new ADL canvas cannot be opened in the original ADL. When you first start the open the new ADL canvas, the following dialog is displayed to notify you of this limitation.
When you open an algo in the new ADL canvas, the Open dialog will list all of your algos, including those you created with the original ADL. However, those original algos will not be selectable and will display a message indicating that you must migrate the algo before you can open them in the new ADL canvas, as shown.
If you want to use existing algos you have already created with the original ADL, you must convert them to the new format, as follows:
TT strongly recommends that you begin migrating existing algos to the new ADL canvas as soon as possible, as the original ADL canvas will be deprecated in the near future.
If you created algos with ADL 7.X, you can still use them by exporting them from ADL 7.X and importing them into the new ADL canvas.
To import a 7X algo:
Using the system dialog, locate the exported .algo file and click Open.
The algo is converted and loaded on the ADL Designer canvas.
