Running PM5 along side PM6?
« on: March 26, 2019, 12:33:27 PM »
Is is possible to run both version 5 and 6 at the same time or at least one, then the other without causing issues with preferences or settings or cache, et al?
(I did try searching for this question, but search results were...m'eh.)
Thanks much.

In my experience you can switch back and forth, but not have both open simultaneously (on macOS).

Yes, but not simultaneously.  They should coexist on a single system just fine.

Thanks, Kirk.
Curious to see the improvements in PM6, but not quite ready to upgrade so I just wanted to check the demo without any worries about my existing 5 set up.
Thank you for the speedy reply!
