Who has installed QGIS 2.0 on Mac OSX 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard)? Is it necessary/advisable to uninstall QGIS 1.8 first? Have you seen any problems importing QGIS 1.8 projects to 2.0?

If you install the 2. version It will overwrite the 1.8 version (QGIS.app).

But,I use everyday versions 1.8, 2. and master on Mac OSX 10.6.8 without problem (often at the same time).

So, the only thing you need to do is to rename the version 1.8 in QGIS1.8.app , otherwise, it will be deleted (QGIS.app)

  • Great - it works. There are a lot of problems with 2.01; I'm sticking with 1.8 excepting one map where I need to increase marker line thickness.
