So that's all good. And thanks to Dave for those updates!

(What's less good is that there's apparently no way to edit or create a new database on the Mac. That's not a big deal for me because I created all of mine on a Palm Pilot--but it would be a nice option to have, especially for new users with Macs. Maybe I'll re-purchase the HanDBase Desktop for Windows if and when I get the urge to do some mods. I have a cheap Win 10 laptop for that sort of desperate non-Mac work.)

Food for thought - Instead of working the old cheap laptop, you might want to consider vmware to virtualize windows on the mac.


VMware Fusion has a free personal license (which was just introduced in the latest version)

One caveat is that if you are planning on getting a Mac running Apple Silicon, right now there is no virtual software that works with Apple Silicon. Parallels have a beta version in closed beta testing, but reports from testers are that it is very basic, and they are not able to do much with it. VMware has not announced anything other than the intent to have Fusion working on Apple Silicon at some point. So if you plan on buying a Mac with Apple Silicon in the near future, then virtualization software may not be the way to go for right now.
Have a good day

I am not a DDHSoftware employee, just a long time HanDBase user.... from Palm to Windows Mobile to Android, to iOS. Thanks to DDH, the database files transferred to each platform without a problem.
