I am getting a dialogue that says "The defaults file could not be created"?

Other than that, all seems ok...

Frank,

Sounds like a permissions issue for the directory where the file lives.

I have Loaded PowerCadd on a new mac mini Pro with Mojave and every time you close the software when it restart's you have to refill out the registration info for both Powercadd and Wildtools.

I remember when Powercadd 9 first came out we had a similar problem. I think the quick fix was to delete a .list file in the Preferences Library. Anyone know how to resolve this?

Bill,
Try filling out the registration info and then instead of cancelling or sending the email notification, select 'Print'. Carry on and see if this resolves the problem.

So are many of you running Mojave? I'm still on Sierra, afraid to upgrade for fear of PC issues.

Thanks!

I just got a new Mac and it will have Mojave. I guess I can back-pedal but not sure on the logistics. It's scary for sure, but my current computer is so old the repair guy didn't want to work on it.

I've been using Mojave for a month or so on my Mac Mini and have had no noticeable problems.

I moved my laptop to Mojave 2 months ago and after zero problems moved my main computer a month ago. A couple of long-standing PCADD issues are still present but happen less frequently. And on a VERY good note, Mojave crashed less than any OS I've used. The main problem I have is when PCAD is running and I'm listening to iTunes through an external system. In the past it has not been unusual for a total system lock to happen multiple times in a day, but with Mojave it is more like once or twice a week.

Running PowerCADD on Mojave for about a month now.

Definitely a problem with SMB servers. Files saved on our server always open as Untitled and I'm forced to Save As and overwrite and old file. A little dicey sometimes.

Window positions can't seem to be saved no matter what I try. I have to move them around every time I open a file.

Holding the option key down when selecting the balloon text tool crashes the program every time. I can't use that tool right now. I miss it!

I am grateful the program still works and hope it continues to be supported!

Glad to have the forum back as well. Happy New Year to all.

Jeff,

See the “Broken Balloon Text Tool” thread in this forum. It’s a font problem that you can clear up as described there.

I am getting a dialog box that says "The custom palette 'Blossom' ,'" that I can't dismiss to get into Powercadd when I start the program. I can get around it by opening a saved drawing and then creating a new drawing. I have tried to delete the Blossum pallete, but I can't find it to do so? Any solution?

Try this:
Quit PowerCADD.
In the Finder, hold down the option key and select Library from the Go Menu.
Open the Preferences folder.
Open the PowerCADD folder.
Open the Custom Tool Palettes folder
Delete the file named Blossom.
