Window decorations/feel in Mac OS all wrong! (MD2010 - 723)

moneydance started just fine this morning. After a crash, it came back with a different skin! It doesn't have the Aqua interface look anymore. The menus are not on the menu bar anymore, but are inside the Moneydance's window, all buttons are square and have a Windows7 "feel" to them.

I'm attaching the splash screen's screen shot so you know what I'm talking about.

Another issue is that every time I select "Revert to download's description" when importing a QFX file, it freezes and I have to Force Quit it (this is what happened just before the look's metamorphosis).

I've cleared all caches, ran all Mac OS's maintenance scripts (daily, weekly, monthly), rebooted and checked permissions just to make sure it was not my java applet going all nuts. I also tried re-downloading Moneydance, and tried running it using one of my backup files just in case. Issue persists.

    The look and feel issue has seemed to be occurring frequently with 2010. On the General page of the Moneydance Preferences, you can change the Look and Feel setting back to Mac OS X.

    Sorry that I can't help you with your other issues.

    Please try the latest build (728) from the link below and see if it resolves the matching revert problem you are experiencing.

    Thanks for the fast replies! I swear I thought I had looked in the preferences pane for anything related to look and could not find the setting. Oh well, Moneydance looks the right way again. Thanks Kevin.

    Ben, I upgraded to the new version you mentioned and importing OFX files work as it should now. Again, thanks for the fast reply.
