I am trying to create a system without history. I’ve been upgrading hardware, OS, apps, etc. for around 20 years. New computer affords the opportunity to clean up if I can migrate apps including preferences that may have been set, installed fonts tht are used, etc. It is a mess, but have worked with several Apple engineers who advise this is the only way to go. (Hoping to resolve very random restart, fail to wake, etc. behaviors.
Currently running Sierra (latest build) and DevonThink Pro Office 2.11.2. New system - Would like to install Mojave possible upgrade to Catalina. Not picky at this point. Probable upgrade to DTPO 3.x in future - have not been able to figure cost. (Also, 3rd dog now diagnosed with cancer; eating financial resources.) Would export, import route be cleaner? (In either DTPO version.)
To tell the truth, my database is a total mess. (Modeled after my brain? In particular, I cannot figure out what the heck is going on with RSS feeds. I don’t think I ever created one -heck, I don’t know how to or what they look like in terms of setup but… I have 80K items that have been added. Really a mess. Esp. as some of them look relevant to projects.
HELP! Please. So much to do and a computer that just decides it needs a break is less than helpful. Cannot use Migration Assistant to set up new MacBook. Apple believes my problems are related to software conflict. They have cut me off unless I get a clean system.
Thanks in advance. I’m sorry if this is garbled. I will be happy to answer any questions. (That’s if my computer doesn’t crash while I try. I have precipitously left many chats because of these problems.) I really need to fix this -almost 4 years of this behavior, except when it abates temporarily. Has persisted across hardware changes, hence software approach.
