  macOS Sonoma

Big Business 14 will support macOS Sonoma, expected in Fall 2023.

Big Business 13 will not support macOS Sonoma.

Sonoma adds new features like Show Desktop to move all windowed apps off-screen.

  Sonoma Beta

Big Business 14 supports Sonoma Beta, available for current Macs starting June 2023.

  Sonoma Tabs

MacOS Sonoma updates Tabs which now do not display correctly in Big Business 14. As pictured, the Name of the tab (Customer) appears blank when that Tab is selected.

Big Business 14 will be updated to fix this problem several weeks after macOS Sonoma is released, perhaps, and may entail updating Big Business 14 Server and Clients, too.

This problem is fixed in Big Business 14.61 which requires updating Big Business Clients along with Big Business Server.

  Sonoma Crash

Older versions of Big Business can crash on macOS Sonoma. Pictured is Big Business 12 which crashes on Ventura and Sonoma and should not be used in the new systems.

Crashes put your data at risk. This solution is here to be found in a search and tell you to revert. Do not ignore these crashes especially if you Big Business Client is crashing.

Starting your Mac while holding Shift-Option-Command-R may offer to reinstall the original operating system for your computer if you accidentally ran Software Update.

  Sonoma Update

Big Business 14.61 updates its built-in Database to be compatible with macOS Sonoma, which will be available September 26, 2023. Please update Big Business Clients, too.

  Caps Lock Sonoma

Sorry there does not seem to be a way to disable Caps Lock bubble in macOS Sonoma.
