I have intentionally waited to upgrade from MD 2017 to 2019, hoping they would resolve most bugs in the new release. We run Apple Macs with the latest Mojave OSX. I have been watching this forum and it seems most issues w MD 2019 are very computer version specific. If anyone is running MD 2019 on Apple Macs and has any advice, pro or con, on the update, I would love to hear them. Thanks.

    Sure would like some input on this post - I don't want to install the upgrade to v2019 and then have all kinds of problems that could have been avoided by waiting a few more months. Thanks! Mark W.

    I am not support staff, just a user.

    I can’t comment directly as I am a windows user but my upgrade to 2019.2(1860 the preview build I am currently running) from 2017.10(1706) is not giving me any problems.
    If your upgrade is a free upgrade, you could do an EXPORT BACKUP of your 2017 data set, put it in a safe place, then upgrade from https://infinitekind.com/preview
    And try things out for a short time.
    If you hit problems, very unlikely, uninstall 2019 and reinstall 2017 from https://infinitekind.com/download_2017
    and restore from your 2017 backup.

    Hope this helps
