Sp2 to SP1 Advice please

We updated to SP2 and created a lot of data, we rolled back to SP1 after the
debacle with SP2, this data is now unreadable in SP1.
What is the real reason for the problems in SP2, is it only the PDF
writing?? We can live without this but cannot live with unreadable data. can
we safely update again to SP2 and forego PDF, for which we use FineprintPDF
anyway.

I've been using SP2.0 with few additional problems. I ran into a wierd display issue with center marks that is new. That's about all I've found it doing what might be classified as machine design.
That's my experience so far.

That's the irony in all of this. SP2 for me has been wonderful to work with. My Save-as PDF works just fine and I've already done a couple of surfacing projects to which I ran into almost no problems.
SP0 should never have been released since it had a fatal "Edge Tangency" flaw. Just download my Alien in a Jar, open the Alien Head and do a CTRL-Q on it. You will see the faces around the nostril area lose it's tangency. What an abomination this release was.
SP1 should never have been released with all of it's drawing problems.
So in my opinion, there is no good release out to this day of SolidWorks 2004 period!!!

I can tell you that every computer set up at SolidWorks World was running 2004 SP 2.0. I'm not sure if it was a modified version of SP2 or the original released version.

Dale, What are you seeing with the centermarks? I just did my first SP 2.0 drawing and I find that I can't drag the ends of the centermark lines out to the boundary of the part like I used to be able to. I don't like the looks of the dimension line crossing over the part and prefer the look of the centermark line extending outward.

Let me guess. Center marks appear in a location far different than the location of the actual hole.

that's definately not a SP2.0 issue. Had it in SP0.0.
So is this yet another regression?

Rob,
This confirms my conspiracy that SP2.0 had perfected the software and that they pulled the SP to add some bugs.

Jeff, you are spot-on!!
my sp2.0 is working just fine. I fixed the pdf bug by simply running a 'repair install' on sp2.0 (needs the cd)

Yikes! I was kidding, but maybe I've discovered a SSSSSSSSHHHHHHHH.
Weird. Black Tahoes just pulled up outside.

The center mark itself is very tiny, and not all of the extension lines appear. SW has seen my screen dumps, but had trouble reproducing it.
My extension lines seem to drag normally.
