Is it safe to use Snagit 2019 and Snagit 13 with the same library?

I'm thinking about trying out Snagit 2019 using the trial version. If I install 2019 alongside version 13 that is currently installed, how will that affect the existing library? If I point it to the same library location that version 13 is using, use it for a few days, and then decide to go back to version 13 afterwards, will the library files still work with version 13?

They share the same Library, so no issues there.

In fact, when close SnagIt 13 with images on the canvas and in the recent captures tray.
Thoses same images will be in the same location in 2019.

Provided you don't/didn't change the default location of the data store/library.

The Feature "Combine Images" and "Simplify" have elements that will not be editable in SnagIt 13.

I might be missing other features that have been added between SnagIt 13 and 2019 that will not be Reverse compatible for editing purposes.
