    Im running Tap Forms 5.3.7
    Anything to be worried about if I update to macOS 10.15 Catalina?

    If anyone has updated and had time to poke around within Tap Forms can you give any feedback please.

    I’m not touching Catalina for at least a month or more until all of the bugs shake out and the developers who have been dragged their feet on 64-bit for the last half a decade finally update.

    @Sam, I hear ya. My AccountEdge Pro software no longer works because it’s 32 bit. Ugh. They’ve had notice like forever that 64 bit was required for Catalina. And they still haven’t updated.

    Even the old version of Tap Forms 3.5 is 32 bit.

    I’m running Catalina now and I haven’t noticed any issues with it so far.

    Hi Brendan,

    Can you please verify Tapforms is working 100% at Catalina!
    Please add a comment on your Home page that it is compatible.
    Tapforms is one of my most used program and have important data stored into. So a none working Tapforms when switching to Catalina is absolute NoGo for me.

    I’ve only had Catalina installed for a few days so far. And so far everything in Tap Forms I’ve tested has been just fine. That’s not to say there might be some edge cases where something breaks though. I just haven’t seen it yet.

    Hi Brendan,
    Im running Tap Forms 5.3.7, and I have updated to Catalina and when I insert content in a location type field the application closes unexpectedly.
    Can you verify this behavior?
    Thank you,

    Yup. That’s an issue that I just fixed today. Switching away from the map view can also cause it to crash. And saving a map location can cause it to crash. Was caused by nearly the exact same bit of code.

    Also I just found that if you have emojis in a field that is used for one of the sort or group fields, that can also crash. And I’ve also fixed that one too.

    I’ll be publishing a new update soon with the fixes.

    Do you have an approximate date for the update?

    Well I’ve had one other customer mention an error they’re getting after upgrading to Catalina. It has something to do with rendering windows, so I’d like to get more information about that before I release an update. Plus for some reason the calculation row in Link to Form and Table fields keeps hiding when you switch to a new record. But only on the Default Layout. Works properly on custom layouts and the main Multi-Column List View. Really not sure why at the moment as it’s the same code used in all 3 locations. But it’s something I’m currently trying to fix before I release another update. If I can’t fix it by Saturday I’ll release the update to Apple for review on the weekend and I’ll fix that in a subsequent update. It’s annoying, but minor.
