Just got stupid and paid for the upgrade to Toast 16 Pro. Looks like there's a few new utilities and 1 new feature(the multi-cam feature) and it also looks like Corel Quality Control hasn't gotten any better. Running Mac OS X 10.12 Sierra. In the burning screen when you click on Menu, the drop down selections are transparent so their text is basically lost because of the background showing thru. The same thing on other dropdown menus. See the attached screenshots. From what it seems to me, I paid for a new version that just has a different color scheme, 1 feature most people won't use, and User Interface bugs. I haven't really played with it to evaluate the burning performance but the one blu ray disk I did burn, never got better than 2x on a 6x Blu Ray on a 16x Blu Ray external drive. Also, after I installed the "100 extra" themes for mydvd, there's no way to find them or use them. I have chatted with Corel about this and they have sent the issues to the tech department. I'm not optimistic about getting any fixes due to their history of Ignoring Toast 15. I hope they prove me wrong. If you have Toast 15... I would wait before throwing away your money on Toast16. Don't be stupid like me. matt caswell
PLEASE NOTE - THIS IS LESS A QUESTION AND MORE OF A KB ARTICLE! RECOMMEND DOING THIS BEFORE YOU TRY ANYTHING ELSE; WORKS 99% OF THE TIME FOR ME! When I have issues with Toast on any version dating back to Toast 14 (Mac), forums, discussion groups and even chatting with Corel/Roxio Support will waste time and ultimately take me to the same resolution. Before checking anything else, do the following below: You'll need your Toast Serial Key (located on your CD/DVD or via email from purchasing online). Without it, might as well contact Corel/Roxio to get another copy of it. Quit Toast Application. Open Finder and navigate to ~/Library/Preferences. Locate and trash the following files (some may not exist if never used): “com.roxio.ScreenCapture.plist”"com.roxio.toast.plist""com.roxio.Toast.LSSharedFileList.plist""com.roxio.MyDVD.plist""com.roxio.videoplayer.plist"“com.roxio.videoplayer.LSSharedFileList.plist”“com.corel.Toast-Audio-Assistant.plist” Empty your trash and reboot your Mac. Login and open Toast. You'll be prompted for serial key, then most problems solved. If that doesnt work, check for updates. Otherwise, this will fix 99% of your issues! Hope this is helpful!
