Uninstall Past Software?

Postby Dzzy88Fngrs » Sun Feb 10, 2019 9:32 pm

Finale Version 26

I have upgraded to Finale v. 26. Versions 2008, 2012, 2014, and 2014.5 are still on my computer.
Is it safe to uninstall the past versions of Finale?
If it is safe and/or recommended to remove these past versions, what is the best way to uninstall them from my Mac?
Thank you.

It's safe to uninstall, but I would keep at least the last few. Depending on your operating system some versions will not work, but I find that every once in a while something is wonky in 26 (notably lyrics that get changed to Chinese) so I have to open 2014.5 and copy the English lyrics from there.

Finale user since the beginning.

In the old days, you could just drag an app to the trash. Now, I would suggest you look into an app cleaner/remover, which claims to do a better job.
