Donation Manager 2

Donation Manager has a fairly straight forward interface, although if there are any problems, contact me at rluckhart@sympatico.ca
Some features are not so obvious, such as the "Reset Window Position" and "LiveUpdate" features, both located under Edit>Preferences. Toolbar buttons for close to all menu items can be found using the "Extra Buttons" option in the Preferences window.
The Properties window (File>Properties) is where the Cause, Organizer, Phone number and E-mail addresses can be stored for individual files.
When editing Pledge amounts, holding down option while clicking the up/down arrows will increase/decrease by five.

More on LiveUpdate

LiveUpdate allows your copy of Donation Manager to be updated over the internet. For this to work you must every-so-often use the "LiveUpdate" button found in the Preferences window. If an update is found, your web browser will be launched and the DM Update page will come up. The update will be automatically downloaded. When the download is complete, switch again to your opened copy of Donation Manager. It will ask you to locate the newly downloaded Donation Manager.
When this process is over, there will be a folder named "Donation Manager (old) alongside the new version of Donation Manager. Launching the greyed out application icon in this folder will finish the updating process. (although this last process is not needed)
