For what it's worth, I have entered a bug on this matter recently.  And the 
quickest solution for me (folder not a fix) was to simply follow a template-like 
path.  I created a blank document with the earlier version with a meaningful 
name - StartDoc for me.  I then opened and saved it in the more recent version.  
For each new document, I simply open the blank/unformatted StartDoc.sla.  It 
seems lazy, but it works.
