CHIRP IS NOT fully functional on a MacBook Pro Big Sur 11.5.2.  What do I need to do in order to use this product on my MacBook (other than what you outlined below)?

Also, in my original e-mail there were three other issues which were not responded to.  They are:

Issue 2:  When attempting to save the CHIRP grid, I run into all sorts of problems in that it does not recognize the file directory structure on the MacBook, and doesn’t allow me to save change to my desktop or other directory.

Issue 3:  I maintain my ‘channeled repeaters’ from the Repeater Book (export).  CHIRP does not allow me to import changes from my Repeater Book desktop.

Issue 4:  I have the 2M and 70cm calling frequencies programmed into my BF-F8HP channels 1-4 respectively.  The import Function of CHIRP overwrites this data causing me to re-enter them again manually.  Is there any way around this?

I know very little about  programming my F8HP and the instruction manual is very poor.  To that end I must rely upon CHIRP and I must say that I am very frustrated in trying to get a straight answer to relatively simple questions. 

 I have worked in IT for over 50 years and have an BSE degree.  I do not care for casual responses or assumptions that  your client base is uneducated.  Most of your messages and responses within this group are, at best, cryptic and often make unfounded assumptions but, then again, you ge what you pay for.  I really have difficulty in trying to understand what it is that you are trying to accomplish.

The first time I run the new version of Chirp, I need to go to the Applications folder and right-click or Control Click and choose Open. macOS will give security warning popup and I can choose to open or move to trash.  Click Open and Bob’s your uncle.
