    I'm a fellow user.

    When using Big Sur with Moneydance 2021 at this point in time, you should ensure:

    1. You should be using the preview build 2008 as it corrects a MacOS issue in the Java that is included in Build 2006:


    2. In the Mac System Preferences, General section, the option "Prefer tabs [always] when opening documents" should be chnanged from "always" to never or "in full screen"

    In the longer term a stable version should be released that resolves these issues, however at the moment I believe there are other significant issues around online banking that are taking priority and given there is a simple approach that can be taken to deal with the Mac issues it does not have the same priority.

    If after ensuring you have done these changes you are still having problems perhaps you can provide more detail as to what you are doing and what is happening.

    It also sorted a problem I had when the app hung every time I tried to change a date field in the Income and Expenses report/Edit.
