Not able to edit

This is for Version 2017.2 (1597) operating on a Mac OS 10.12.6. For some reason, Moneydance will not let me edit transactions. I click (or double click) on the register. Nothing.

Probably something very simple, but I can't figure it out.

    Hi Donald,

    Sorry to hear of the issue you have encountered while using Moneydance. Can you let me know the type of mouse you are using with your system? If it is an Apple Magic mouse, I'm afraid that we are aware of an issue that causes erratic cursor behaviour. It appears that Java is unable to interpret and the communicate gestures performed on the back of the mouse, to the operating system. We are eagerly awaiting a new revision of Java that will resolve this issue, as soon as it becomes available we will be incorporating this new version into Moneydance.

    Do you have the opportunity to test Moneydance using a different mouse to see if this is the cause?

    Hi Ian—

    We have two licensed versions of Moneydance running on two separate machines. Both use wireless mice. One works perfectly. The other doesn’t allow editing.

    Also, as I mentioned, the one that doesn’t allow editing is using an older version of Moneydance. Would upgrading it help?
