After updating my mac to Monterey the Moneydance screen looks strange, I attached a portion of what the main screen looks like. The font looks different and labels have incorrect spacing. It's unusable. I welcome any suggestions.

    Reset theme to default? Look at console log for font problems? What version of MD, it should be a fairly recent preview to be compatible with Monterey.

    I found the console message and see following in it: "Warning: the font "Times" is not available, so "Lucida Bright" has been substituted, but may have unexpected appearance or behavor. Re-enable the "Times" font to remove this warning.
    ". So it would seem this missing font is the issue.

    I'll have to see if this font can be installed somehow.

    I had found that same link and tried installing the font. I can now choose Times as the font in Moneydance and the error goes away but Moneydance still looks the same. I'll have to try a Moneydance upgrade as I am running quite an old version.

    It looks like Apple removed the Times font in the Monterey update. I haven't seen other complaints that Moneydance doesn't display properly in Monterey so I'm guessing the newer version doesn't use that font.

    Just to update, after upgrading to 2022.2 it does now display properly.
