I have two questions. Hopefully someone can help.


1. I would like to down load the demo version of 2013. Will this override any of the current settings for 2012? (2012 is installed on hard drive)


2. Is there any site or way I can find a list of the things that have been fixed/modified or corrected that were not working correctly or just flat not working in vrs 2012 the were taken care of in vrs 2013?

Doesn't answer your question, but you might find this list helpful:

Thank you! That helps a little bit. From what I see most of the bugs are dealing with parts of the program we sldom use, but I cud be wrong. Anyone know about question 1?

You should be able to install side-by-side without issue.  Mind the content browser, of course; can't remember if 360 is in 2013 or 2014.


Before you get started, make a system restore point.  If something unexpected happens, its a convenient way to roll your system back to a known-good point.

If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.
Adopt. Adapt. Overcome. Or be overcome.
A good question will be halfway to a good answer.

Installing 2013 won't affect your 2012 installation in any way. Either can be removed without affecting the other as well.
