The development of TinkerTool System 6 as a new application (and not as simple update of TinkerTool System 5) was necessary because Apple has significantly changed several aspects of macOS. This also had consequences on the user interface. Although the new application tries to make the switch between TinkerTool System 5 and TinkerTool System 6 as smoothly as possible, the locations of some features on the panes and their names had to change. If you have upgraded and you are searching for missing functions, please use the table below to find their new positions within the program.
