Fix - Settings files not being imported correctly from older versions of MacWise.

You can store pictures on a Mac or PC on the network to make the pictures available to any Mac running MacWise.

64-Bit version

In development for over a year, this 64-bit version of MacWise is working towards compatibility with future releases of Mac operating systems. (The 32-bit version will no longer work with the next MacOS major release expected this fall.)

Advantages of this new version:

64-bit application will no longer have warning messages that the app is not optimized for OS X and needs to be updated.

Text is easier to read because a TrueType font is now used as a screen font.
(The 32-bit version used a bitmapped screen font that has been increasingly difficult to support with each release of MacOS)

Dark Mode is supported in Mojave.

Fkeys work with the Touch Bar on MacBooks.

All dialog boxes have been re-designed and now have a pleasing sheetwindow effect.


Not implemented yet in this version:




NOTE: MacWise version 1.0 was originally released January 1, 1996 as a slimmed down version of MacToPic. Over the years, it became a full featured app.
(MacToPic was released in 1989).
