Good day.
I run Moneydance latest version on Fedora Core 35.
I cannot open attachments of invoices attached to their correspondent entries. There is no error message. Moneydance simply does nothing when clicking pdf

Thank you for helping.

    Hi Wolfgang,

    We are sorry to hear about the problem you have encountered.

    Would you be able to send us a copy of your Moneydance error logs, the logs should include information on what might be causing the issue.

    They are saved on your computer as an errlog.txt file. You need to navigate to:


    Finally you can copy the full content into your next reply here.

    Thank you

    Unfortunately I don't see any relevant errors in those logs. Let's try this method:

    1) In Moneydance, click on the Help menu in the Moneydance menu bar and select the Console Window option. This will open the console messages window.
    2) While the Console Window is open, attempt to open an attachment. Any error messages should be recorded to the Console.
    3) Select all of the text in the Console and use the Copy to Clipboard button at the bottom to copy the text.
    4) Paste the text from the message window into a text file (preferably saved with a .txt extension) and attach that file to your response here.
