  1. I don't know if it's related to the trouble you're having, but there is at least one show-stopping known issues with the Mac version of 5.02 and foot pedals: http://nch.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=14265
  2. I've tried this on both a 2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 4GB RAM (Macbook) and a 2.8 GHz Intel Core Duo with 4GB RAM (iMac). Immediately upon open it goes to about 50% and within a few minutes of playing audio in ES the CPU is maxing out and system becomes unresponsive. As soon as I quite ES the CPU returns to normal. Using Load or Load and Delete. Tried with FLAC, MP3, and AIFF, all with files between 10 and 60 minutes long. No incoming sources or special process. Yes on foot pedal. Standard VEC. I've rolled it back to 4.05 and that's working much better, so I'll be sticking with that for the moment.
  3. On both my Mac systems (Macbook and iMac) the latest available version, 5.02, is using enormous amounts of CPU resources and is making other apps completely unresponsive, so it doesn't appear to just be eating up idle time. By the way it starts at a high level and just grows until the whole system is unresponsive is acting like a memory leak somewhere. I've tried this on both Mac OSX 10.6.2 and 10.6.3. Express Scribe 5.02. Doesn't appear to matter what kind of sound file format (AIFF, WAV, FLAC, MP3). CPU resources are up around 98%. Closing Express Scribe fixes the problem.
  4. There are a few known issues with the latest version for Mac. The problem with foot pedal preferences has been noted somewhere on this forum, but I've not encountered the other problems you describe. I use FLAC and MP3 files and they've all loaded properly--actually FLACs work better in the latest version than the previous one. That's not to say these aren't bugs--just that I haven't encountered them.
  5. Not sure, sorry. That's never happened to me.
  6. The newest version (4.26 for Mac) remembers the location. It does have another bug, though, in that at least with some foot pedals there's no ability to program which button does what. It's mentioned elsewhere in the forum as something they're looking into, but it's worth knowing before you upgrade to 4.26.
