Many thanks Akash, that worked well. I guess I was looking for the opportunity to point to the Lr 6 catalog when the first dialog box opened up with the prompt to convert to Lr 6, rather than going into the application itself to do the pointing..
A further question please: what is the simplest method to combine 1 or more catalogs? and is ok to include in the catalog containing data from as far back as Lr 2 and Lr 3? Also is possible to have a single catalog which is just too big to function (eg. 300,000-500,000 images)? I find it a real pain switching between catalogs with collection split between these.
Thanks for your help Akash.
