How show Bernard's Loop etc.

I am attempting to reconstruct night sky 26,000 years ago.  I want to show several features of Orion including Bernard's Loop and the nebula in Orion's head SH2-264.  In the list of Options I have tried I think everything and cannot seem to make them visible on the screen.  Any help appreciated.

    I tried typing in Find for both objects 'Search All Databases' and it reports 'No items found'.  Could it be that there is an Option that must be turned on for it to find it?

    What program and version number are you using? Look in Help ---> About Starry Night.

    Thanks for update idea.  I installed both updates.  But still I can't get Barnard's Loop Sh 2-276 or Sh 2-264, the Find search still says "No items found'.  So I searched only 276.  Lots of things came up but apparently Starry Night does not have a Sharpless database, at least if I search Sharpless on my version, nothing comes up.

    I am finding these in the database.  See attached images.

    Do you not have the same result?

    No.  When I enter Sh2-264 or 276 nothing turns up.  Even typing Sh brings up no Sh's.  If I type S I get dozens of files but none begin with Sh.  Somehow that database is missing.  I am using an Intel iMac not a PC, but I did download the two updates directly from your website for the Mac platform.  Don't know if this is a factor.  All I can see is that the Sharpless database doesn't seem to load.
