  • Useful Information - X11 Fix for Leopard (10.5)

    Some users have reported problems on recent versions of Leopard (10.5) which cause ReportWriter to not load properly. There are a number of symptoms, including an inability to type text in ReportWriter, or your dock "blinking" repeatedly after attempting to run ReportWriter. Apple has released a fix which should solve this and related problems, so try this if you experience "strangeness" running ReportWriter. Perform the following steps exactly:

    1. Reboot your Macintosh.
    2. Download X11 Beta update and install it.
    3. Reboot your Macintosh, again.
    4. ReportWriter should run without problem.
