FAQs - DavkaWriter for Mac

Since I upgraded my Mac operating system, DavkaWriter 7 doesn’t work. What do I do?

Please contact Davka support to email Tech Support to confirm your eligibility for upgrade pricing to our Catalina-compatible version.


I’m trying to run DavkaWriter 7 on my Mac but it crashes when I start it. What do I do?

If DavkaWriter on your Mac crashes with the following error:
“The program davwrite.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.”

the most likely cause is that DavkaWriter needs a printer to be installed on your system. If you don’t have a printer installed on your Mac, DavkaWriter won’t run. To solve this, you can install a free virtual printer called CUPS-PDF from here:

Once this has been installed, go into System Preferences -> Print & Scan and add this as your default printer. Run DavkaWriter and it should work fine.


How do I save a DavkaWriter document as a PDF?

In DavkaWriter for Mac, the PDF export is a button at the bottom of your File -> Print box.
