The recent thread “Need DTP for Travel” ([url]Need DTP for Travel]) has useful comments about being careful about synchronizing and preserving integrity of databases.
I’m starting a new thread because my situation is complicated by the fact that the two databases I want to consult during a trip are managed by DtPO 2.3.5 on an Intel iMac but I will be traveling with an iBook G4 running OS X 10.5.8. Access to these databases will not be crucial. Before I request a link to download an older version of DtPO, I would like to understand what might be involved.
a) each database has fewer than 200 items, all items are imported or created as internal notes, no item is indexed from an external folder
b) read-only access is sufficient during travel. I will use Opal or Twig for notes of discussions and outlines of draft documents. If I choose to import new stuff while away from home, those items will go into a new database.
c) If there is not a simple mechanism to downgrade a DtP database, then File : Export : Files and Folders… will probably suffice.
