Hello: I have tried to download newer versions of Libre Office but the old one keeps taking over. Now I have two versions on my computer - the new one (I make new documents with that) and the old one - any existing documents I made before, open with THAT one. It’s very confusing! I want to migrate my older docs into this new version. I do NOT know code. I just want to simply UNinstall the older version.
I have Mac OS10 snow leopard. (yes, it’s almost obsolete; I am poor.)
the "new " version I downloaded is 22.214.171.124. Build ID: 3a87456aaa6a95c63eea1c1b3201acedf0751bd5. That is on my desktop.
The “old” one I can’t get rid of is: LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 OOO360m1(Build:3). That is in my applications folder. No matter where I move it to try to delete it, it won’t let me move it to trash because the message says it’s “open.”
When I open an old document made with the old build it comes up in the OLD Libre office. Can I just delete the old application, or do I somehow have to change my hundreds and hundreds of documents made with THAT, to the “new” build - which so far I can only get to open through the internet - and keep from “ejecting” it? (?)
Normally the new program, or whatever, uninstalls the old one, or you have an option to do so. I never received that option and have been fighting with this old build ever since I downloaded it. I don’t want to do anything to old libre office app and risk losing all my old documents. Please, will you help me? I’m not a techie but I can do simple things normally, like install and uninstall applications. THANKS in advance. I just want one - newest - Libre Office build on my computer and I just want all my documents to be OK!
