How to open a MAXQDA 24 project in MAXQDA 2022

MAXQDA 2022 cannot open the .mx24 format of a MAXQDA 24 project, but you can save a MAXQDA 24 project to the .mx22 file format of MAXQDA 2022 by following these steps:

  • Open the project in MAXQDA 24.
  • Select Start > Save Project As from the main menu bar.
  • Set the file type to “MAXQDA 2022 Projects (.mx22)”, select a file name and location, and then click Save.

A few elements of MAXQDA 24 will be changed because MAXQDA 2022 does not have the functionality to handle new or changed features:

  • Document and Code names are shortened to 63 characters.
  • Comments and Paraphrases are shortened to 256 characters.
  • Maps are saved as images.
  • If you have selected “no color” as the document colour in the properties of a document, the color will be changed to the default blue of MAXQDA 2022.
