We love the Dawn Theme but are still on version 4.0.0 and we want to upgrade to the newest version 6.0.2 but are unable to without redoing every page and all the customizations. I see online that you can now transfer existing customization with the new Shopify update , but don't have that option. Shopify, please help???

Hey! If you are using a theme that has received code modifications, those modifications won't copy over. If you do not see the option at all to update your theme, please contact support so we can take a closer looks (https://bit.ly/2AWw5VA)

We love the Dawn theme however each time an update comes out we have to manually update each page/template. So we have add all the images back and sections. This is crazy! Please allow the updates to include the templates copied over

Hi, automatically copying over templates during theme updates is a good suggestion, please feel free to contact support to submit a Feature Request (https://bit.ly/2AWw5VA). Bear in mind that unless there is a specific feature that you want to use in the latest update, there is no need to update your theme

We love Dawn theme, thank you! Just a question we can't update our current theme to 5.0. Is it crucial to update to 5.0 or is it okay to stay at 4.0? We have some code changes in our theme maybe the reason why we can't update.
