Default Remove Reaper W/O Impacting Projects?

Hey Folks,
I need to remove Reaper to see if it's causing a core audio issue conflict with Logic Pro X.

1) If I just drag the app to my trash, does that delete all Reaper files, etc?

2) Will doing so cause me to not be able to use my projects after reinstalling Reaper?

Both are sort of moot questions -- if REAPER's not running it shouldn't be affecting Logic Pro X (or anything else on the system) in any way (other than using some disk space).

In addition to the .app file, REAPER also uses the following paths/files/symlinks:
  • ~/Library/Application Support/REAPER
    Your REAPER configuration
  • /Library/Application Support/Propellerhead Software/ReWire/REAPERReWireDev64.plugin
    ReWire device plug-in
  • /Library/Application Support/Propellerhead Software/ReWire/ReWire.bundle
    ReWire bundle (this is shared across all ReWire apps, if other ReWire-supporting applications are installed you should not delete it)

(removing these will not prevent you from opening your projects, however if you remove your configuration directory you will lose your license key, configuration, preferences, etc)
