OR -- you could just use Preview, which is installed on every Mac within the past 5 or so years and do it for FREE.

Re my previous regarding Toast 11.1 on Mavericks: I discovered the solution --- I was installing the latest update of Toast 11. When I went back and installed from the original download version that I purchased, and went through the Register module, then everything was fine.

I don't understand why -- it just happened that way. "All's well that ends well."

@Satcomer -- I thought so, too, until I found out differently.

Open Terminal, type at the prompt "sudo purge" (without the quotes).

It seems that there is still no POP3 support in this 'update' -- in fact, I notice nothing about it compared with the original -- all of my old smart folders in Mail under 10.7.5 are still lost, and I'm unable to configure them.

So -- where's the improvement? Am I missing something?

Installed Mavericks yesterday, Toast 11.1 today.

At launch, it presents the Registration window series -- which I fill in with the correct info -- then it promptly crashes.

Relaunch -- same process -- endlessly.

Same with Toast 10.

Seriously, folks -- why would you spend even $1.99 for something that you can do in Terminal -- by typing in the word purge at the prompt and then hitting the return key.

Not sure to make this a Comment or a Troubleshooting issue — but, I suspect that Troubleshooting issues get less attention.

I've had issues with FaceTime — flat out would NOT work. I tried every possible solution, finally got help from the Apple TechSupport folks. It turns out that TCPBlock was the culprit — I had to remove it to get FT functionality again.

I really counted on TCPBlock to act as my application firewall — too many apps 'phone home' or wherever for my liking.

I hope that something can be done to enable me to re-install TCPBlock so that I can have its protective functionality.

Many thanks to the developers for this excellent software.

@Rayj -- I've tried using some of the GrowlyBird products -- specifically GrowlyNotes (in place of xPad) and GrowlyWrite (in place of Bean).

Sadly -- their software seems far too complex for my simple mind. And, even though GrowlyWrite says that it will open .rtfd files, including images -- I have yet to be able to do so.

Bean has been a great OS X word processing program -- in the mold that TexEdit was under Classic Mac OS (though I don't even begin to use it since finding Bean).

Bean will be sorely missed from the OS X fold of great applications.

Meanwhile -- thanks for such wonderful software -- and for free, too.

I've noticed that our weather here is a whole lot nicer with Version 1.6.1 -- it was always a bit rainy and nasty this time of year -- now it's sunny and clear.

The recent updates to 11.1 has resulted in the return of an old problem (for me, at least) -- the entire DVD burns, and then the Lead-Out track just goes on and on and on. I eventually hit the 'Cancel' button and then 'Abort' -- and I end up with a usable DVD.

I'm also curious about the automatic update feature (available in the Preferences, I believe) -- it asks if you want to download the update, and does so if you agree -- and after the download is complete, it asks if you want to Install and Restart. Is there any way to 'grab' that download (wherever it is) and save it as a separate file? I do NOT have a TimeMachine backup -- so I save various versions of downloaded software on an external HD.
