No wrench at top right

I am using the latest Mac Ninox app on Monterey and there is no wrench at the top right to enter the edit mode.

How do I get to edit mode?

    Sounds like you saved the db to your iCloud drive. If that is true, then on your Mac, click on the down caret in the upper right corner of the DB. Select reorganize and let it do its job. Then you can now edit the DB.


    iCloud saved DBs only allow one device (MacOS or iOS) to be the owner while other devices can open and add data.

    Fred, I'm very grateful for the solution you posted. I had no idea why I couldn't enter Edit Mode, and I never would have figured out how to do it without your tip. Thanks so much.

    Just as Fred said :)
    Ninox databases which are saved in your iCloud can only be modified on the device they have been created on. Ninox has this setting to avoid conflicts. With “reorganise” you can re-allocate the admin rights to another device. You find this function in the menu of a database icon at the little grey arrow on the right to corner. 

    Attention: With this function the database will be newly created. 

    Please make sure that the database is up to date with synchronization to other devices before executing this function. Otherwise you may lose the changes of the other devices.
