I'll give the <esc> key a try next time. Thank you.

The issue seems to be that modal windows were not used correctly. The design concept of a modal window was for interactions that must be completed before doing anything else. That means they need to be, and are in good practice, coded such the they are always on top and cannot be hidden. The RM7 program seems to have missed this.

 

You'll notice that good Mac programs tend to use very few modal windows and then generally only for critical interactions.

I'm still willing and able to beta test RM8 for the Mac.

Will Apple moving from Intel to ARM chips in their Macs cause concern to RM v8?

It may be optimistic to assume that there is a beta RM8 to test!

 

Don't worry about ARM macs which are 2 years away from no intel. Worry that RM8 is still vaporware!

But don't you just love those vaporware demo's, they can do anything with cgi these days :D
