Is it safe to move to 10.x yet?


Recommended Posts

I'm still using 7.14 as I was too scared to upgrade after reading posts here. Just wondering what experienced users think at this point...... Thanks.

They can be installed at the same time.  There is no harm in giving it a try yourself.  Everyone has different use cases and will have different thoughts.  Best to give it a go yourself.

What is the procedure for doing this? I assume do not "upgrade" from 7.14 but download separately from Evernote website? Anything to be aware of re issues doing this double install?

It has been a while since I've done this, but I would suggest you download the new version from the Evernote website and I believe it will see your current installation and give you options to select from there for them to co-exist.  As a precaution, it never hurts to do a backup first, especially if you use local notebooks.

Install the Legacy product from https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/360052560314-Install-an-older-version-of-Evernote   
This installs the app named "Evernote Legacy" (we can"t have two apps named Evernote)   
It also does't auto upgrade to v10

As I recall, you can change the name during installation.  At the time, I wasn’t sure what had changed in the “legacy” version and instead wanted to use my current installation.

@DavidD Yes

A word of caution: I did this quite a while ago, so maybe some of the fine details escaped my memory yet, and the apps may have changed meanwhile. Then there is the issue with local notebooks. I never used them, but if you have them, they require a special treatment, because they are not supported in v10.
