Hi Martin

I'm still here....:-)

Not sure if this is a problem or not, but I am being asked to upgrade my Apple OS from Mojave to Catalina and am a little concerned about warnings on 32 bit and 62 bit software. It says that 32 bit software will no longer be supported.

It suggests running a system report to identify 32 bit applications and up came Templot Forum etc as incompatible.

I run Templot on my Windows based PC so that's not an issue, but does this mean I can now longer read read the Forum via my Mac?

Seems you are not alone as my version of Office is also listed, so now I'm caught between a rock and hard place. If I don't upgrade I may lose security options etc, but if I do, then I may be faced with non operational applications/software.

Can you throw any light on this and does this mean no access to the forum?

Hi Gordon,

And I'm still here -- good to hear from you. :)

Sorry, I don't have an Apple Mac and know nothing about them.

However, the upgrade definitely won't have any effect on accessing this Templot Club forum or the Templot Companion docs, because they are web pages, not programs. The upgrade will certainly include a browser which will continue to display them just fine (and everything else on the web).

What effect this upgrade will have on those using CrossOver/Winebottler/Wine to run Templot on a Mac, I can't say, but someone here will know. :?

cheers,

Martin.

That’s the bit (web pages) that I couldn’t understand, but I’m far from an expert and thought I’d just ask the question.
Templot won’t be an issue for me as that’s on my Windows PC, but I am a little peed off having to renew my Office software or staying where I am with Mojave.

I suspect I’ll have to bite the bullet sooner or later, as it appears Apple will only guarantee compatibility with the last three major software releases. That’s probably only three years based on the speed of new OS systems.

Happy days.....:D

Before you shell out cash for Office check out the following:
Libre Office  https://www.libreoffice.org/download/download/?type=mac-x86_64
Open Office  https://www.openoffice.org/product/mac.html

Cheers for now

Thanks John. My wife and I have worked on Word and Excel for years, so we are both well versed. I doubt that we would want to have to learn a whole new package unless there was a guarantee all our our existing documents will be compatible.

Open Office may have the same problem according to various Mac forums and until they develop a 64 bit version, it is unlikely to be compatible with Catalina.

Getting back to Templot, I have used Crossover to occasionally run PC software on my Mac - Templot being one of them. Crossover issued a warning on 7th October:
"If you use CrossOver for macOS, this information is VERY IMPORTANT for you.

Earlier today, Apple released the new macOS Catalina. Catalina does not support 32-bit applications. Currently, CrossOver still uses pieces of 32-bit code for every function and will not launch or install any Windows apps in Catalina. If CrossOver is critical to you macOS experience, we ask that you wait on upgrading to Catalina until we release a Catalina compatible version.

At this time, we anticipate that an alpha version will be available sometime in the next 30 days. We will continue to update you as development progresses."

So I have dusted off my ancient Windoze laptop and use that when needed until Crossover is updated.

Dave

Open Office runs ok on my 64bit windoze pc and laptop and is very similar to windoze office.

Cheers

Phil.
