Upgrading from The Journal 7 (any previous build)

Click on the “File” menu, “Maintenance” sub-menu and choose “Backup The Journal…” to create a backup *before* you install the update.

Click on the “Help” menu and choose “Check for Update of The Journal”. Download the update and install it over your current version. You can also download the update directly from the Web page, as this build is now the default download.

NOTE: Please close The Journal before installing the update. The Journal cannot be running when you install the update.

Upgrading from The Journal 6 (or any previous version)

NOTE: Do NOT uninstall the previous version! (At least, not until you’re satisfied with the upgrade. Then you can uninstall the previous version.)

Download and install The Journal 7. If you have The Journal installed in the default location, you will be prompted by The Journal 7 about upgrading your TJ6 (or earlier) Journal Volumes.

You will need to close The Journal 6 while TJ7 upgrades your Journal Volumes. After that, though, you can run both The Journal 7 and The Journal 6 simultaneously without any issues.

  1. Hi,

    I’m using The Journal since several years.
    The major usage is the Weekly review and Planning.

    Therefore I have a set of entries.

    My normal process was:
    ‘copy ‘entry to the clipboard’ and ‘paste entry from the clipboard’.

    So I had the option to process the review and planning as an update of the former week entries.

    After the update to the actual release of the Journal it seems that the ‘paste entry from clipboard’ does not work anymore.

    Is there any trick to get this working again?

    Best regards


  2. A fix for that will be in the next update. If you need the fix immediately, I can send you an interim update. Email me:
