Hi Vva,

 

Great, glad you like it!

 

Hi Hugo,

If you are using a Custom Workspace, you can add it as Vva indicates...

Hi Tech,

 

Thanks so much for the update!

 

Could we get a list of the changes/fixes that were made in this update so that we can test them?  Thanks...

I'm now getting an error each time I try to open the program where it tells me that it can't load the preferences file. It has me locate a file, and then crashes. I've tried redownloading the program and installing it fresh, but the problem persists. Help?

 

v8.0.2 still works fine.

Hey Evan,

 

You can fix you preferences by Quitting formZ, going to the Finder: Go Menu, hold down Option, choose Library: Preferences: autodessys -- and rename the formZ 8.x folder(s)

 

Support said there should be a new beta later this week too...

Hi Evan,

 

In addition to Rob's suggestions, if you just click Cancel for locating the Preference File, that should also launch properly.  Then go to Preferences and designate a proper Preference File (or save a new one).

 

Yes, an updated Beta is coming soon!

But FYI in beta 2 when I hit cancel, it would go into the application, and after only a few seconds the spinning beachball of death would appear and the program would crash every time.
