I recently installed AS 2014 and everything went smooth. I
imported my settings and such fine, but a couple of the saved
connections did not transfer. I have saved connection types
for stairs, shear tabs, clip angles, etc... but the Base Plates
and Shear Tabs library of saved connections did not transfer.

I'm guessing here! but I suspect this is due to these connections having being updated to suit the ability to be used on tappered sections in AS 2014.

The different library databases are probably not compatible perhaps!

That was something I thought of but converting the databases from 2013 should have compensated for that.

Hello Jonathan,

Try to remerge your AstorRules using the Convert Databases tool in your Graitec Advance Manager.  This should take care of your issue.  If this does not work, you can send us your AstorRules of 2013 and 2014 and we will convert the data bases for you.

Kind Regards,
