Reports are that macOS 10.15 has issues. I am holding off upgrading until it is more stable. I used to a third party tester to check that Hyper Plan runs Ok on 10.15, so that I didn’t have to upgrade my development machine.

I’m also none too happy about Fujitsu dropping ScanSnap support for older scanners, but the S1500/S1500M is supported by a lot of good third-party scanning tools like VueScan, so that’s an option if you do choose to upgrade.

Thanks Chris, I’ll have a look at VueScan.

Catalina is causing issues on quite a number of forums. My concern is more due to the growing lockout from the core of my own system. Every update makes it harder to access the core of my macos.

In terms of upgrading the old adage of don’t fix what isn’t broken applies. Because apple offer the OS upgrade for free, somehow people feel they need to upgrade. My experience is that each new macos is buggier than the one before. When I used Tiger there was rarely a beachball, now I see them all the time. Also things like Facetime just don’t work consistently. The camera often refuses to come on without a restart. I read a recent report that stated apple now have a 48% markup on their products. I’m not sure I’ll be able to afford a new one when the time comes and am already thinking about what I’ll do (certainly not microsoft). Might need to try a Hackintosh or Linux.

It looks like the vendor is working on getting TopXNotes 2 to 64 bit ...https://www.tropic4.com/64-bitFAQ.html
