Sometimes latest versions of the software can cause issues when installed on older devices or devices running an older version of the operating system.

Software makers usually fix these issues but it can take them some time. What you can do in the meantime is to download and install an older version of Bean 3.1.0.

What's new in this version:

- Bean Preferences > View > Zoom Control will display a zoom slider in the status bar, like Bean 2.x (20120520-1). Bean may hide this control due to lack of space.
- Added a note to the Tips & Tricks section of the Help file about how file management (deleting files, moving files, copying files) is done using the Finder, not Bean.
- Added a ‘Full Format’ menu item (which includes the weekday) to the Date/Time toolbar item popup menu (20120601-1).

Bug fixes:
- NSAutomaticWindowAnimationsEnabled is now set to YES for Bean (so you will see window animation in Bean even if you have the global version of this preference set to NO). This avoids a very nasty bug that crashes any non-Lion-only app that uses the popup dictionary on Lion when Lion’s window animation is disabled.
- Fixed inconsistant drawing of document tabs (20120605-1).
