Good Afternoon,
I just upgraded to Moneydance 2017.7.1 from 2014.4. With 2014.4 when I downloaded transactions from my bank Moneydance was automatically recognized as the application to open the file. Now with 2017.7.1 the file keeps going to the download folder, then I have to open it in finder and select "All Applications" in order to make Moneydance an available application. This has become much more cumbersome - is there a setting that I need to change?

    Hi Kenny,

    This is a Mac OS issue & as such is nothing to do with your upgraded MD

    Try this:-

    Go to your downloaded file. Right click it. Select “Open With”.

    Go down to the bottom item “Other”. On the next screen find MoneyDance in the “Recommended Applications” list. If it’s not there select “All Applications” Then highlight Moneydance,

    Now put a tick in “Always Open With” click Open.

    Hope that helps.

    Jeff – just another user
