Can you convert my old Grapher files?

The current version of Grapher opens graphs created in previous Grapher versions (Grapher 2 and all newer versions). Grapher DOS and Grapher for Windows version 1 files are no longer supported. If you have files from these older programs, you can use our online file converter to convert them to a new format. Instructions for doing so can be found here. Alternatively, you can send the GRF and all associated data files to and we will convert them to the newer format for you.


If you have an older version of Grapher between Grapher 3 and Grapher 8, you can convert your Grapher DOS and Grapher 1 files using a script. Follow these steps to use the script:

  1. Download the attached convert old GRF to G7.BAS script file.
  2. Open the script in Scripter.
  3. Change the line: Directory = "D:\temp\Grapher\" to the desired directory that contains your GRF files.
  4. Click the Script | Run command.


New GRF files are created in the same directory with _G7 appended to the file names. These files can be opened in the current version of Grapher.
