Newbie Mac-OpenCPN - Questions Please

Hi OpenCPNers,

I am trying to familiarize myself with OpenCPN on my Macs and have a couple of questions while I dive into it. A couple of questions have come up so far:

1. I see that there have been issues with getting the window frame to show in OS X (grn/yel/red balls etc along top of window screen). I can't get mine to show; any solutions?

2. On my iBook the text in the info bar along the bottom is too small to read--is there a way to increase this text?

3. Is there a way to get routes, waypoints, etc to sync on both my macBook and my desktop iMac? I tried placing the app on Dropbox, but it didn't carry over the routes created on the other computer. Where else are the data files and does anyone have a solution to keep the files updated on two computers easily?

Thanks for any pointers,
