Is Site Designer compatible with Mac OS Catalina? I’m getting a new iMac and plan to use my current version (I can upgrade to v4) on the new computer. I really couldn’t find OS requirements for any of the software. Where is that listed on the site?

I haven't got Catalina, but I know that the developers at CC always use the newest OS, and also check compatability with older OSes (within limits), So you can safely assume that SD4 will work.

Thanks. You don’t happen to know where they list the computer requirements for the software, do you??

Quite often they list the requirements along with the presentation of the software, but usually this is done for minimum requirements, not 'maximum'. Like if something can still be used with some old Windows version, or if some Windows version is not supported any more. I haven't ever seen this for any older Mac versions.
I can vaguely remember something in connection with windows 10, when it was new, there was a need to update something in some piece of software. Other than that I don't know of compatability problems with new stuff.

I'm using SD on Catalina (10.15.1). No problems for me.

BTW, here's something to consider when getting your new iMac. If you get the 27", you can add your own RAM for more memory. It's much less expensive than buying it preinstalled and it's performed wonderfully for me.

I ordered a new 2019 27" iMac with 8GB RAM from B&H Photo & Video. I also ordered 2 16GB DIMMs from them (link below). Once the computer got here, I looked up how to install the RAM on YouTube. It's really easy. So now I have an iMac with 40GB RAM and saved almost $500.

Thanks!!! I did order only 8 GB RAM and bought 2x16 to install. I’ll do it before I turn on the system for the first time. Glad to hear SD works :)
