Mac OS X 10.7 and 10.8 and 10.9 and 10.10 and 10.11 and 10.12 and 10.13
InTouch With (ITW)
InTouch With 3.1.3 will work in Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks, Yosemite, El Capitan and Sierra and High Sierra depending on the circumstances.

Old versions of ITW (v.3.1.2 and prior) will NOT work under Lion or anything more recent.
Testing of ITW under Lion through High Sierra has shown that your documents (data files) should be unharmed. Many customers are using ITW under these version of the operating systems. We have no reports of losses. We strongly urge that all users make secure back-ups of their ITW documents (data files).

Known problem #1: Activation Key Problem
Situation >>

ITW v.3.1.3 (or prior) installed on a Snow Leopard or El Capitan computer that is then upgraded to a more current operating system.

Purchased a new computer with Lion or a newer operating system pre-installed and then installed ITW v.3.1.3.

Results >>

ITW will continue to work.

ITW will install, but you will need to re-enter your activation key every time you launch the application. Hint: Leave ITW running. Just collapse it into the Dock when not in use.
(El Capitan is an exception.)

Warning >> We strongly urge that you make a secure back-up of your ITW documents (data files) before upgrading your operating system. We strongly urge that you make a secure back-up of your ITW documents (data files) before upgrading your operating system.

GOOD NEWS under El Capitan, Mac OS X 10.11.2, Apple appears to have changed the operating system so that it no longer blocks our activation key system. It should accept the activation key, so that you do not have to enter it all the time. The "Run as Demo" feature should also work for 30 days (or some number of remaining of days). Then the demo feature will properly disappear.

Known problem #2: Memory Usage Problem
    A few users have reported that running ITW causes other applications to run more slowly. This is caused by ITW using (or allocating to itself) too much memory. This does not hurt anything, but it can make other application run less efficiently.
    Solution: It this problem seems to be happening, go to ITW's View menu and select Hide Toolbar. Then go to ITW's View menu again and select Show Toolbar. In some instances this seems to clean up the memory allocation problem, at least temporarily.
NOT GOOD NEWS under Sierra macOS 10.12 and High Siierra macOS 10.13. Apple has reverted to its pre-El Capitan behavior and is again blocking our activation key system. ITW continues to function, but has the activation key problem described above -- unless you entered your activation key during the El Capitan window of opportunity.
