How are updates and upgrades handled?

Hi and thanks for a great looking product - just downloaded and itching to get going...

I am wondering how are updates and upgrades handled, please?

For example:
Does it auto-check for them on start-up like web browsers do?
Should I backup anything important before installing them?
Can I 'step back' safely from updates and upgrades if bugs are reported?

Cheers
Leanne

Welcome, hope you'll like it here!

By default, the app checks for updates on startup. When the update window appears, you can uncheck/check that option.

It's not necessary. All your personal data is stored inside one file, the coollection file. The app creates backups automatically in case your coollection file gets corrupted somehow.

It's not impossible that one day your computer would die completely and you lose everything on it. That's why it's also a good idea to backup your coollection file somewhere else. You can easily do it on your own (for example on a USB key), or you can use the online backup feature to save it on our servers:

If a bug is reported, I immediately release a new version to fix it. I could provide a link to the previous version, but fixing is better. I much appreciate when users report any problem they encounter!
