Post Turning off the Starting Point dialog
MacVector 10.5 comes with a dialog that is shown when you start MacVector for the first time. This feature is meant for new users. It's there so they can easily find their sequences, and the sample files. MacVector is very easy to use, however, we added this to make the first few times even easier to use.

However, in MacVector 10.5 (not MacVector 10.6) we've noticed a few times that the dialog can freeze.

There is a workaround to this although it involves the command line!

- Make sure that MacVector is not running

- Open up the Terminal application (hold down SHIFT - CMD - U to open the Utilities folder and double click on

- type the following command exactly (probably best to copy and paste this):

defaults write com.macvector.MacVector StartingPointPreferences -dict-add DontShowStartingPoint -bool yes

This will set the MacVector preferences to NOT display the Starting Point dialogue.
