I also have an issue that when trying to send texts or place calls, after entering the info and selecting recipient or typing full number, nothing happens. No error, Messages does not open, messages are not sent. The previous version worked perfectly.
I would summon Alfred
type - im Tonya (or full phone number)
hit return and message was sent without focusing on the Messages app, and giving me an alert message back saying that the message was sent.
In this version, I get nothing at all. Am I doing something wrong?
