    Unfortunately, after updating to Beta 4, the screen flickering issues when moving sliders are still just as bad as ever for me. The problem started in ON1 2017 after I updated to High Sierra, and it is much worse in 2018, with the screen not only flickering, but also flashing to magenta and zooming down to a thumbnail as I move any slider. I have also sent an update with screen recording to ON1 support on the case that I have open.

      Why is this comment hidden from view? I’m not trying to be negative–just stating what happened.

      Hello Jay, Each of these will be addressed in the final release. It looks like it was fixed post beta 4.

    I have used Beta Four since yesterday, to develop a handful of photos and to create a layered composition of fireworks, (which I have added to the Gallery).
    So far, I have encountered a few wobbles and odd pauses, but essentially it has worked in a very impressive manner. No bugs to report so far, other than I am having to manually select the correct lens corrections.
    Over all impressions are very good. I hope that everyone else is having an equally good experience.
    Best wishes, David Price.

    Finally tried and HDR. Have to say, it looks pretty impressive. Natural look requested, natural look received. Well rendered from Highlights to keep shadows, without all the adjustments that I have had to do in other software. It is only my first HDR in this software, but initially looks very good.

    Not sure why the color of the icon for the module you are working in is now white, there is not enough contrast to really see this at a glance, quickly, I liked the yellow better, it was a quick glance to know where I was working.

      OK, I found the setting for this, my bad, although I don’t recall changing this, but at any rate, found it, fixed it, done.
