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.)
As I mentioned in this post Apple regularly change the way to merge a PDF document. Yet again it’s changed with High Sierra – for the better. Now when you drag a pdf onto the thumbnail window of an existing pdf the two documents will ALWAYS merge. This make it easier than ever to merge 2 pdf documents. Here’s how to merge 2 documents in High Sierra.
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.
According to Nuance Dragon 6.0.8 is compatible with High Sierra. But in High Sierra the ‘scratch that’ command doesn’t work. The correction window doesn’t work either. These are pretty crucial to an everyday user of Dragon. So unless you absolutely need to be running High Sierra, I’d suggest you stick with Sierra and run Dragon 6.0.7 until those issues are resolved.
UPDATE 2/2/2018: See this post for a fix to this bug.
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:
The upgrade (10.13.1) is here:

Lots of websites are running articles about whether High Sierra (OSX 10.13) will run on your current model Macintosh computer. The bottom line is, if your machine runs Sierra, it will run High Sierra. The hardware specs for 10.13 are exactly the same as for 10.12. But as usual I suggest you wait until the first update comes along before you upgrade. There are always a bugs in the first release.
If you are still running Yosemite (10.11), now might be a good time to upgrade to 10.12.
