Even though I checked the box to preserve my settings.

I am so aggravated that I had to spend a half a day restoring and reconfiguring my workflow just for an update. Not pleased to pay a monthly fee for something that ends up wasting my precious time.

Thanks for the opportunity to vent ...

I think it is still a good idea to upgrade, but not migrate settings from the previous one to the new one. Less weird problems when done that way. But yes, you have to comb through it all and set things up again! It takes awhile!

Thanks for your time, it's amazing it's that counterintuitive.

The checkbox shouldn't be offered if the d**n rhing doesn't work and actally creates problems. Or at least come with a warning ... Thanks again.

Hi @FloridaGal:

 

Between my own upgrade experiences and those I help here on the forums, I have also concluded that it is better to recreate preferences than to migrate them from the old version.

 

But I am talking preferences and not my saved Find/Change queries, style mapping presets, scripts, TOC styles, etc. Those presets all live in folders on our hard drives and I just copy them to the same folder for the next version. I upgraded last week, and was fully up and running within about 15-20 minutes after installation was complete.
