I have installed OS X Mojave and it is working nicely.  I was pleasantly surprised to find out that some of my older and more obscure applications are still working.

Photoshop CS 5.1 is working. I was expecting it to break, but as usual I just had to load the Java run script libraries and it worked.

Illustrator CS 5.1 is still working.

Dragon is working. Nuance claim they have not tested Dragon with OS X Mojave but it is working for me on my late 2012 Mac mini and I can dictate into Microsoft Word and Pages and Mail.

Scansnap Pro is working and imports into Devonthink Pro.

Microsoft Word 2011 still works.

The only app that seems to be crashing is Online Bible.

Mac OS X Mojave was released this week. Don’t forget that if you have more than one Apple computer it will save you time and data if you download the installer once and then copy it across to your various computers.  Don’t use the automatic update feature of OS X. Instead download the installer from here: Apple’s Mojave download page

Apple don’t want you to do this, but it’s necessary for some apps.

  1. Go to System Preferences then ‘Security and Privacy’.
  2. Click on the lock in ht bottom left corner.
  3. Click this second option

You may need to go in and allow some apps individually from this same control panel when you are trying to install them.

Apple as usual have been putting out software updates regularly, but some of them are very big. Software update 10.13.5 is over 2GB and 10.13.4 was 2.5GB. We have 4 Macintosh computers in our household so when they each download it, that ads up to approx 10GB of downloads. This  is not a problem if you are on unlimited internet but if you have a small plan or if you are using your mobile phone hotspot for internet this can chew through your downloads pretty quickly!

Did you know that you can download the update once then copy it across to each computer by hand to save space? Here’s how.

Last October I posted here about what apps were incompatible with High Sierra.

I need to add that Filemaker Pro 11 is completely unusable. It crashes whenever you do anything. (And according to a comment below FileMaker 12 does not work either.)

Today I discovered a major bug using Illustrator with Apple High Sierra 10.13.1.  Illustrator is stuck on the ‘hand’  tool.  This renders illustrator completely useless because you can’t do anything at all.  A quick Google search discovered that lots of other people have discovered this problem in all versions of Illustrator and also InDesign. I am using Illustrator CS5  which is an old version so I was a bit worried that I wouldn’t be able to resolve this problem. Thankfully there was a simple fix.

On October 31 Apple released the first update to High Sierra, OSX 10.13.1. There were a few teething issues with High Sierra 10.13 so the release of 10.13.1 might be a good time to upgrade.

My ‘Software Update would not find High Sierra or the upgrade. I went to ‘Software Update’ only to be told ‘No Updates Available.’ If this is the case for you,  you can download High Sierra manually by going to this link:

http://appstore.com/mac/macoshighsierra (It’s 5.5GB)

The upgrade (10.13.1) is here:

Read on for a couple of tips before you Install High Sierra. Continue reading ⟩
