Thank you for the link to the Zip file. Is that a Full install of Bookdog 5.3.13?
Yes.  It's a full download.  Your old License Key will work, and no upgrade fee is required.

Hi Jerry

Thank you for the link to the Zip file. Is that a Full install of Bookdog 5.3.13?

If not, can I re-download the Full Install and add my license serial number to register the software?

Can you provide the link for the install?

Thank you
Mike

But do you have an opinion about Safari 4.1 for Tiger? I have it in my other G4, and I find it cumbersome - too many graphics.
I don't remember any difference in the graphics, but you know, I'm an engineer and often can't tell the difference between 1st-grade art projects and fine art.

Any harm in staying with Safari 3.0.4 and re-installing Bookdog version 4.2.4?
I'm sure Apple would tell you that there are security vulnerabilities in 3.0.4 that have been fixed in 4.1.

Should I do the Book Dog update for version 5 afterward?
It's up to you.  Bookdog 5.3.13 certainly has fewer bugs than 4.2.4, but it only matters if you've had trouble.

Hi Jerry

Nice to hear from you Smiley

Yes ok, I'll stay with my Dog Smiley

But do you have an opinion about Safari 4.1 for Tiger? I have it in my other G4, and I find it cumbersome - too many graphics. Any harm in staying with Safari 3.0.4 and re-installing Bookdog version 4.2.4?

You are correct; the lastest version of Safari for Mac OS X 10.4 is Safari 4.1.  You should click in your Apple menu and select Software Update….  There may be other Apple apps that need updating too.

Does the latest Safari have the ability to Alphabetitise?
No.  No version of Safari has ever had the ability to alphabetize bookmarks.

If it works for you, you can keep Bookdog 4.2.4.  If you ever have any trouble, though, update to the latest version, which is 5.3.13.

Hi Gang

I just formatted a new system drive; 10.4 - then did the 10.4.11 combo; http://support.apple.com/kb/DL17

When you read the description it sez includes the LATEST version of Safari when really the latest is Safari 4.1 for Tiger. (I got 3.0.4)

Wondering if I should keep 3.0.4 which is what I got with the combo update. Or should I download the Latest Safari?

I've seen the latest and to tell the truth it seems rather heavy on the background images and junk, unless you choose not to have them.

Getting to Book Dog;
I have Bookdog version 4.2.4 Does the latest Safari have the ability to Alphabetitise? Or should I just stick with 3.0.4 and re-install Bookdog version 4.2.4?

Thanx
Mike
