Moving on up to CheckBook Pro

If you just got the bug to upgrade from CheckBook to CheckBook Pro, or you’ve moved your license to the Mac App Store (you should – we’re dropping the price on the Mac App Store waaaaay down to $4.99 every Wednesday for the rest of August) you’re in for a treat:  CheckBook Pro can read all of your CheckBook data without breaking a sweat.  All it needs is a little help to find your CheckBook Accounts document.

If you know where your document’s at, just open it by dragging it onto the CheckBook Pro icon in your Dock or by going to CheckBook’s File menu and clicking the Open… menu item.  We’d recommend not keeping the document in your old CheckBook 2 sandbox container (~/Library/Containers/com.splasm.checkbook2/Data/Library/Application Support/Splasm Software, Inc./CheckBook 2) because if you ever remove that container phwooooop! your data will go right along with.

If you’re not sure where your document is, or if it lives in iCloud, open CheckBook, go to the File menu, click the Backup… menu item and save a backup of your Accounts document in your Documents folder.  Quit CheckBook, open CheckBook Pro and drag the document backup onto the CheckBook Pro icon in your Dock or go to CheckBook Pro’s File menu and click the Open… menu item.  To move the document to iCloud, go to the File menu, click the Move To… menu item and move the document to iCloud from there.

That should do it, but drop us a line at if you need a hand.  We’re happy to help!
