Big Sur

I am finding that X-way crashes consistently on launch in Big Sur 11.0.1 with a Problem Report starting as below. I gather from previous comments that it should be running normally. Is it just me? This is an iMac 18,3 with 40Gb memory.

Hi John,

Thanks for this report.

We haven't had time to test Xway within Big Sur, and we don't recommend upgrading immediately, but we will fix any problems when we release a new version in the coming weeks.

The log shows that the problems are happening when the Site panel is first displayed after automatically reopening an existing document. You might be able to work around this by disabling the automatic reopening of existing documents: e.g. try turning on "Close windows when quitting an app" in General preferences.

Thanks for the suggestion, Jeremy. The report came from a clean install on a new Big Sur volume where no document had ever been opened because Xway was never able to start. I always have "Close windows when quitting" enabled. No problem as I have a Catalina volume.

Hi John,

We've reproduced the problem here, and we will fix it soon!

We've just released a minor update to Xway (b2.3), which runs on macOS 11 Big Sur.

You can download the update from our website (click on "Download the Xway beta now" on the Xway page).

Well done. That is excellent!
