I recently (finally) bought a new MacBook Pro, and celebrated by finally upgrading to Panorama X. I could have timed it better as it is taking much more time than I have available right now (I had anticipated a smoother transition). My immediate problem is that one of my two most important databases had imported from 6 relatively well. Most of the routines needed work, but that was reasonable given the extent of the rewrite. After using it for about three weeks, and about a week after eliminating several obsolete fields, the database crashes Panorama X whenever I try to open it. Unfortunately this means I cannot recover the data as I cannot export. And, since I cannot open the database, I cannot try to revert to any previous versions. I will be trying to repair the data by hand, but the saved version after the import now crashes the app within a few searches or other operations.
Another database I imported seemed to be working fine as I updated it daily. Then it suddenly reverted to the version from the day I imported it, losing all the data I had entered in the previous four weeks. All the version I could revert to were the same old version without the new data. This is relatively trivial in terms of the data as this was a sheet that I use to track my weight. (After the import Panorama had autonomously added fields for “fat” and “body water” which I found curious). I am guessing the data is gone for good, but would be curious as to possible explanations so I might avoid this in the future.
I am a longtime user, since the original Overvue, and would very much like to continue as I am old and have no desire (nor perhaps ability) to learn a new system. But if I cannot rely on Panorama X to manage and preserve my data, at least as reliably as Panorama 6 this old dog will have to learn new tricks. Any help or clarifications would be most welcome.
