    I installed Parallels 17 a couple of days ago, a happy experience. It downloaded and set up windows just fine. However, now I want to use it in coherence mode. Looking at page 42 of this document:
    there should be a blue coherence button at the upper left corner of the window and it simply isn't there. Nor is there such an option in the view menu.

    Is this a feature that is missing from the trial version?
  2. Hello, are you unable to open Coherence mode?
    What is your Parallels Desktop version? Did you install it from the AppStore?
