with lightroom 5.7 i move from windows 7 to mac os x curent version. under mac os x i loaded the catalog into lightroom. but all i get is a preview of all fotos i used under windows. after i copyied the folders with RAWs and XMP Files i still have ti impoet the fotos into lightroom. after that, i get the developed fotos without any protocol information of the changes i did.
so, my question: what do i need the catalog for and where are the development protocol information stored? All Information i have are stored in XMP files anyway.
