Can't Open Linked Records

Hi All;

I recently upgraded to a MacBook Pro. I have been a long time HanDBase and a Windows user, and my previous laptop ran Windows 7. In the process of upgrading to the Mac, I purchased the HanDBase desktop version for Mac.

Installation was a snap, all my records synced, and like many of the Mac versions of Windows programs I've been using, looked sharp and crisp. One tiny snafu. I was unable to open any linked records on the Mac desktop version. If I clicked on the the button that allowed you to follow the link to the linked record(s), it did nothing.

Is there something I'm missing? Or perhaps is the Mac desktop version more limited than the Windows version?

From day one on the new MacBook Pro, I have had Parallels installed, so I downloaded my existing HanDBase desktop for Windows and installed that. It is running just fine on Parallels. However, although that temporarily and possibly long-term solves the problem, I'm trying to use all the Mac versions of the programs that I can.

Plus, it didn't hurt to throw a few more dollars in the HanDBase direction.


An addendum:
Running Yosemite OS X 10.10.5.

Thanks for posting.

Unfortunately the native Mac version of HanDBase Desktop does not support link or relationship field types at this time.

I suspected that.

Thanks for the reply.

Do you have any plans to add support for Linked and Related Databases to HanDBase for Mac?
