I just bought a Dell Mini 10V to use on the road at trade shows and enter orders into Quickbooks. So far i've got it all setup with Snow Leopard and the most recent version of Quickbook 2010 for Mac. Everything is working great as far as the computer goes, Safari works; I was able to get the screen resolution tweaks setup.
My problem now is just with Quickbooks. When I open up Quickbooks, the software tells you to "Customize Your Company Toolbar". The problem is when I open the Toolbar, it's blank and I can't do anything with it. I am supposed to see icons that I can move/erase/or create and I am supposed to be able to right click in the Toolbar and it will pull a menu to add things to it. None of this happens. I just have a blank toolbar and it looks slightly grayed out.
I followed a procedure to add a Report to the toolbar. This seemed to work but once I told it to create an icon on my Toolbar, it doesn't show the icon. The toolbar is still blank.
I've tried changing resolutions to 80% and 90% and 100% and the Toolbar still isn't functioning correctly.
I am going to try to take a screenshot to help illustrate, though there isn't much going on.
It seems like maybe there is some strange screen bug going on or something. Any one have any experience with Quickbooks for Mac on a netbook?
One thing I am going to try next is to setup my company toolbar on my iMac and move my Quickbooks company file back over to the Netbook and see if it will open with my saved toolbar. I have a feeling that it won't show it. It seems the toolbar is being masked and isn't indeed empty like it appears, but it just masked for some reason.
