    Big Jump from MC 6.5.2

    My old Mac Pro finally died, forcing me into a new iMac and most likely an upgrade to MC 2019 from MC 6.5.2. I still have a lot of files on my drives and some older projects I'd like to go back to. Will I still be able to open project files from the older version?

    Re: Big Jump from MC 6.5.2

    Hi NateW,

      In general projects are backwards compatible, however, any new feature or function (including format support) will not go backwards.

     We always suggest just bringing bins back and not the entire project. This ensures that any project setting that doesn’t exist in the old version doesn’t cause any issues.

    Also we really recommend that you create new user settings when going to 2019.x as this will prevent any issues relating to old and new bins and projects as well.....
