Lack of default printer crashing omnis

Thanks Doug,

Totally agree. It's more a case of how far can we go without retesting every single line code and breaking some key functionality. Mac hasn't been an option for many years so it's purely Windows based plus some other third-party tools that absolutely need to be compatible.

hi Jock.

Unless you have any real limitations (eg still need to run on high sierra or earlier of OSX), then I’d suggest to go to the latest 10.2 which runs on win 7 and up, and Mojave and up, including the new M1 chip.

there are, of course, programming and testing effort of the latest omnis version..  but I din’t think I’d stop halfway.   especially if you have users on mac.

Can anybody tell me if this has been resolved in later versions? If so, what version eliminated that issue? Is there maybe a DLL that could be copied over to a prior version to stop this from happening?
