I’ve bought a license for HyperPlan (Home, at this stage) and I have to say it is a great app.

I’ve used it today in a client meeting, and they were really impressed with it. Using it as a brainstorming tool connected to a projector was great.

On the Mac, it could use a bit of interface spit and polish, but the pivot tables it can create are way more engaging than anything I’ve ever been able to achieve with Excel!

Highly recommended.

I’m glad you have found Hyper Plan useful.

Is there anything in the Mac UI you found particularly glaring?

It’s quite nitpick, so I don’t want to sound mean!

Things like in the sidebar, the labels don’t align with the selector boxes, and the ‘gear cog’ icon is non-standard. And when you click one of the disclosure titles, it highlights grey for a moment.

So nothing major, all fit and finish stuff that I guess is possibly a result of the app not being built with the standard macOS AppKit environment? (I’m not a programmer, so I guessing a bit.)

Constructive feedback is always welcome.

Yes, we build the Windows and Mac version from the same C++/Qt code base. This has a lot of advantages for us and the end user. But it also means it is difficult to get 100% fidelity to the Mac look and feel.

The minor misalignments of form elements is a Qt issue and a source of considerable annoyance to me as well. I wish they would fix it. I may be able to use a stylesheet to tweak it slightly.

What do you consider the standard gear cog. The one in the ‘finder’ tool bar?

I will make a note of the greying of the disclosure arrow. It might be an easy fix.

Lots of ideas for major new features in v3.

No, the ones to the right of the selectors in the sidebar that bring up the additional options window.

Exciting!
