Downgrade from Capture one pro 23 to 21

    Work around idea. Have you had setting of XMP sync to full? In that case you can rebuild the catalog in 21. By creating a new catalog and reimport

    If you had a catalog that was created with version 21, then Capture One will have created a backup for you when it upgraded it to version 23, whether or not you actively made a backup. You can go back to the backed up version 21 catalog. Instructions on restoring from a backup are here. 

    If you go to the catalog in Finder, you can right click it and choose Show Package Contents.

    You should see something like this.


    Capture One Catalog.cocatalogdb is the latest version of the catalog database. The ones saying backup are successive backups of it each time it was upgraded from an older version. The one with the highest number is the most recent. 

    Bear in mind that you will need to use Capture One 21 to open the restored backup, so you must either open that or re-download it an reinstall it.
