Subject: upgrade to 2.13.50 and LilyPondTool
sorry to bring this up, I know it's been asked before but I couldn't find the info in the docs.
I want to try out the new version; my present setup is jEdit/LilyPond 2.12. What do I need to
reset when I install 2.13.50? Sorry about asking this, but I use LilyPond every day and spending
several hours to figure out how to reset everything would be more stress than is good for me right now :-|
Now that I've gotten used to the great printout being without it would be a real pain!
You don't state what operating system you use but for Windows and Mac you can simply download the 2.13 release, rename
your 2.12 dir to something different and then install 2.13.x as normal.
That will work for
LilyPond generally. I do that all the time, but I don't use
Jedit or LilyPondTool (just notepad or
LilyPad – the default editor with Mac OS).
That way I can have multiple versions of
LilyPond installed to test. I can only assume that the other tools will be ok because they will be looking for the default location which by renaming your 2.12 directory and installing 2.13 will place the 2.13 in the 'standard place'
and so that might be all you need to do.
