Making the switch from PC to Mac -...

I have a few RSD sites I've built on my PC but soon I will be transitioning to a Mac. Is it as simple as copying my latest exported file and the corresponding RSD to my Mac? Are there any helpful hints? Also when I buy the OSX version can I install it on my Mac laptop as well as my desktop?

You can install any purchased CC programme on up to three machines.
I'm not sure if you can move your exported projects from a PC to a Mac, but you can of course moce the rsd files.
Ha en riktig god dag!

I made the same transition a couple of years ago.

Yes

If you're note familiar with Mac yet, go to your local Apple store and ask them to show you the basics. For example, "My Computer" on Windows is "Finder" on Mac.

For the official answer, you need to read the license for the software or open a support topic and ask the question to Coffeecup staff.

Thanks Brian, I hope it really is that easy.
Inger, when I said I would copy my latest exported file what I should have said was folder. As in; mysite_exported
It's my assumption that RSD would require that folder to continue.

Unless you've modified the files in the _exported folder, all you really need to do is move the rsd file. You can then re-export. However, if you move the _exported folder, it's just the same.

Well, that's good news Brian. I think I'll download a trial version of RSD to my Mac Air to do a test run then once my desktop arrives I'll buy the OSX version to install on both Apple computers. Thanks for the info.
