Turns out FileMaker do not sell an upgrade from FM 12 to the current FM 17 version. Does anyone have a cost-effective solution for this?

There are several converters mostly supported in ios to convert android document to ios document.

Comment on How to stop Dragon for Mac Version 6 from crashing by Malcolm Macpherson https://macintoshhowto.com/speech-recognition/get-dragon-mac-version-6-working.html/comment-page-1#comment-1130862 Thu, 21 Jun 2018 03:06:31 +0000 http://macintoshhowto.com/?p=4558#comment-1130862 This is dreadful!

I bought DNS for my Macbook Air last year, and it was unusable. After a lot of chasing around a very obtuse web site, I got a refund.

Then I bought an Imac, and thought I’d try again, so bought an on-special half-price version of Dragon Professional Individual 15. I can’t even get it to start! It loads OK, and puts up the icon. But if I speak, or click on it, it just shuts down. I lodged a service request with Nuance, no response! Why is this not fraud!

Comment on A note to Dragon Users about High Sierra. by ian https://macintoshhowto.com/dragon/note-dragon-users-high-sierra.html/comment-page-1#comment-1130855 Wed, 20 Jun 2018 06:11:07 +0000 http://macintoshhowto.com/?p=5182#comment-1130855 Read that High Sierra was compatible, purchased Professional Individual for Mac (supposedly the latest version) and can’t even get it to launch without crashing.
Tried to seek an update but get the message “An error occurred in retrieving update information. Please try again later.”

VERY disappointed.

Comment on Fixing the ‘Scratch That’ and ‘Correct That’ bug in Dragon and High Sierra by Steven C Hardesty https://macintoshhowto.com/dragon/fixing-scratch-correct-bug-dragon-high-sierra.html/comment-page-1#comment-1130823 Thu, 14 Jun 2018 17:54:30 +0000 http://macintoshhowto.com/?p=5266#comment-1130823 I went from Dragon for Mac 4 to Dragon for Mac 6. It was definitely a downgrade. I can’t use Dragon in Word 2016 now. I’ve contacted Nuance over and over and they have been of no help. They’ve told me there is a know version problem, without putting in right which version of which they are talking about. The only version of Dragon I have is 6.0.8. I guess I can try these things you are suggesting, but they don’t sound like fixes. Maybe I should try Pages and see if that’s any better.

I’m thinking there should be a class action law suit. No benefit to the individual user, but it might get Nuance to address the problem.
