I’m going to have to upgrade my OS in order to run Dorico 2.
I’m currently using OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite, because it’s the highest level I can go without breaking my installation of FontLab Studio 5—which I like to use for designing music fonts.
Inevitably, this upgrade will create a problem, because I don’t really like the new FontLab VI program (at least not yet), and I’ll be giving up my music font experiments in order to upgrade to Dorico 2… and I’ll be sad about that. At least until I eventually figure out what my replacement path is—perhaps via ‘Glyphs’, or I may eventually develop a fondness for ‘FontLab VI’.
Anyhow, enough of my belly aching which I’m loosely disguising as background info here… I’m still looking forward to using Dorico’s latest and greatest features in spite of my other losses… which I can happily blame on Apple anyhow.
My main question here is what’s the best approach for changing the OS on my Macbook?.. (Fresh Install or, Upgrade).
On my Windows computers I’m very reluctant to consider an Upgrade… I’ve always taken the path of a time consuming, but clean, Fresh installation for each and every OS change I’ve done.
With the Macbook I’m currently on, this will be my first OS change… and I’m wondering how bad, a simple OS upgrade might go for me.
Do upgrades on Apple products work well… or am I still better off with a fresh installation here?
I’m happy to hear about the NEW Dorico 2 release… I’d already be using it, but I first have to sort out the problems I’ve mentioned above.
