I noticed with version 7 you are told to uninstall version 6. However, what about the notes that I have accumulated over the years? Will they fit into the new version. Also there is apparently no manual.

Uninstalling BW6 uninstalls all of the program files that were initially uninstalled. Note files or any other additional databases or anything else you added wouldn't be deleted. So uninstalling BW6 has no effect on these files.

Since in BW6 you had the option to put your default Notes directory anywhere, your notes may not even be in your BW6 directory if you changed that. Anyway. Notes work just the same in BW7, you can copy and paste the files to whatever directory you are going to use for your Notes in BW7 and tell BW7 which directory that is or if you like the directory where you had your notes, simply do nothing to the files themselves, just tell BW7 where you want it to look for your notes.

If you're unsure of how to change the note directory, click on the User Notes Tab in the right 3rd column of BW and with your mouse in that field hit F1. That brings you to help on the BW7 Editor (Chap 14) and for more specific help on doing Notes in BW7, read also Chap 16.

Thank you. It was that easy.
