I am currently running v1.0.2. It has been suggested that I should move to Version 2.0.0alpha4. Thank you ct...
I have always kept away from any version of anything that is not recognized as 'Stable' but in this instance am happy to follow the advice but; (with me there is nearly always a 'but' as I try to understands) should I uninstall my existing version first or just go ahead and add the new one. I am presuming that update is not an option. I do not have any drawing saved within the program root, all are safety tucked away on a separate drive.
It should be OK to just do an install on the top of version 1, the same directories will be used and updated -but (you`ve got me at it now) ...but if any problems occur just un-install version 1 and then do a 'clean' install of version 2!
Ha ha ha. There is nothing like a good 'but'. As it is a Windows machine I run a backup program called Acronis which not only backs up data but also the entire disk partitioning structures as well as my OS, That means I can always 'revert' if necessary. Partitions, OS or individual files. Don't like doing it as it takes forever but never the less it works, and very well.
I shall install over the top as you suggest and report back. Thank you for your help.
