Qualcomm also notes that known issues in this release include text display problems in some dialogs due to the larger default font size; sometimes buttons in modeless dialogs won’t respond to clicks — if you switch to a different application then back to Eudora, the buttons should respond; drag and drop text doesn’t work; LDAP is not implemented, use the OS X Address Book application instead; Tabs in tabbed windows may not size correctly; Inline PDF images may not display correctly; Eudora isn’t able to get the Finder to open folders (“Open Scripts Folder,” find attachment in Finder, etc.); double-clicking on URLs sometimes won’t display the URL in the web browser if the browser is already open; nicknames dragged to the toolbar may display tiny icons or the Eudora application icon instead of the expected photo.
