I wish that were it.  I had created the new class as a -V.  Here is 
another interesting bit of info.  I ran unix2dos on the models and 
options files, then used them to initialize a new winacedb. It worked 
perfectly.  The new class  appeared in the add/alias/rename window and 
everywhere else it should have, as far as I can tell .  

Can someone else please try this with 4.8 for Unix and see if it's just 
something I'm doing? 

Thanks a lot.

I created an ACEDB on a Mac several years ago and now have been 
trying to update it in the latest download of the UNIX software. 

Problem: I created a new Class in models.wrm and options.wrm, then 
displayed it by editing the layout.wrm. It works ok and I can read 
.ace files into the new class, but when I try to use 
add/alias/rename, the new class does not appear in the list of 
classes in the Add/Delete/Rename/Alias Objects pop-up window. 
Likewise, it does not appear in the "other class" pop-up from the 
main window. It does appear in the "Selection" pop-up from the main 
window. 

I did reinitialize the DB with no effect. 
Any ideas on how to get it to show up for Add/alias/rename? 

Thank you.
