Sad truth about iOS apps

Replaced or just deleted any 32 bit apps I had. Opened files in 32 bit apps and converted them into something else, typically Text or PDF. Lots of files I printed to PDF and stored the PDF versions. 

Bought some software to open MacDraw files and save them as PDF.

I had some WriteNow files that I had to move to a really old laptop, print to PDF, and then move back. 

All in all, I’m pretty sure that every file I now have can be viewed under Catalina. And thus, I have migrated to Catalina. It took a bunch of time, but hey, have lots of time right now.
