Default Enforcing PC compatability

I have to send a PT session in a Zip file to a vocalist I'm collaborating with. I'm using a Mac, she's using a PC. To make my session work on her system is it just a matter of checking the "Enforce PC compatability" box in the save session window when I do a save? Should I be checking this box on all my saves?

Not really necessary with PT 7.x but it can't do any harm if the option is available. Also probably best to choose WAV as the audio file format as a PC is involved.

One other thing, PT 7.x can open sessions created in earlier versions but not the other way round so 'Save as' if this is going to be an issue.

Thanks Phil. I'm running 6.4 and I don't actually know which version the other party is running. I'll try to find this out.

Use "Save Copy In..." and check the Mac/PC option.
