    Hi Pavel

    Sorry – this is due to an error in the Russian version, so you need to reset the language to English and try again:

    1. Start the Goalscape Desktop application and select 'Try' (the first option)

    2. Click the 'wrench' icon to open the Preferences screen and select English (US or GB)

    3. Exit or Quit Goalscape Desktop and restart it.

    4. The English EULA should be scrollable (if it appears at all), then you can Accept it and Activate your installation by entering tour username and password.

    Thank you for letting us know about this issue – we will investigate and resolve it.

    If this still does not work for you, please post again and we will give you instructions for a full reset.

    All the best

    Hi Richard.

    I can not access any buttons including «Try». I can not resize first window or move the content inside.

    I’ve delete applecation and reinstall it. But problem appeared again.

    In this case I can’t do anything even if I buy the license.

    Hello Pavel

    No worries – you can revert to the default English version quite easily by resetting all your Preferences.

    To do this you need to delete the Goalscape Desktop 'SO' files and folders under Preferences in your Library. In Finder, go to

    [user_home]/Library/Preferences/[application_id]/Local Store/#SharedObjects (where '[application_id]' is GoalscapeDesktop)

    Delete all folders and files that have have the form '[guid]' (where [guid] is a long character string). (See attached screenshot.)

    If you cannot see a 'Library' folder under your user account, you need to unhide the Library folder before you will be able to find the SO files in its subfolders. The steps are:

    1. Click the Spotlight icon (magnifying glass top right)

    2. Enter 'terminal' and click the 'Terminal' option when offered

    3. In Terminal, enter the following text

      chflags nohidden ~/Library

    4. The next time you go into Finder, your Library folder will be available.

    After you have deleted the Preferences, when you start Goalscape Desktop it will be in English. If you have not yet bought Goalscape Desktop you will be able to access the trial by clicking 'Try'. Note that until you purchase the software you cannot Activate Goalscape Desktop with the username and password you received for your Goalscape Connect trial.

    Thanks again for bringing this to our attention – we have traced the error and the fix will be in the next Updates.

    Enjoy the journey!

    Hello Pavel

    Great, thanks for letting us know. When you purchase Goalscape Desktop you will be able to activate your installation(s) using the Welcome screen in the default English version.

    I confirm that this anomaly for trial users in Russia will be fixed in the next Goalscape Desktop update.

    Enjoy the journey!

    Richard, thank you for the information.
    Right now I’m thinking about buying the license.
    The only thing that bothers me is the that there is no app for iPad / iPhone with synchronization.

    Thanks again.

    Hello Pavel

    In fact we are about to release a new version of the Goalscape Mobile app for iOS and Android. This will be a companion app for Goalscape Connect: it will sync with your online projects to deliver daily goals and task lists to your mobile device – in text hierarchy form, with the facility to update goal attribute information. We have added you to the list of beta testers and you will receive a notification when we release it.

    In the meantime you can already access Goalscape Connect direct on your iPad. To do so you need to use the free Puffin browser. Unlike the standard iOS Safari browser, Puffin supports Flash applications. So on your iPad, install and run the Puffin browser, then simply go to the Goalscape Connect website and sign in: you should have access to Goalscape Connect with full functionality.

    Enjoy the journey!
