TypeIt4Me and OS X 10.9 Mavericks 23/10/2013 45 Comments
Good day to you fine folks making your way out there in the Macosphere. It's been an eventful week, wouldn't you say? Here at ES headquarters we've just about recovered from Tuesday's spectacular Apple media event, though we almost had to be revived with smelling salts after the big reveal of the new Retina display iPad mini. What a razor sharp beauty. Of course, the other big news was the launch of Mavericks. In the wake of Apple's newest operating system being released for public consumption, we've been contacted by a number of customers asking how to make TypeIt4Me play nicely with OS X 10.9. As some of you have already discovered, Apple has re-jigged the Accessibility system settings in Mavericks and TypeIt4Me is disabled immediately after upgrading. Don't worry, though, for help is at hand. All you need to do to get it working normally again is follow these simple steps:
sentimental reasons testing purposes. Surf's up...enjoy!
[Edit: a few people have found that even after following these steps TypeIt4Me remains disabled. You may need to log out and then log back in. If it *still* won't cooperate, try opening your TypeIt4Me preferences, click on the Expansion tab and ensure the checkbox for 'Disable keyboard expansion' is *not* selected. There appears to be a bug that switches it on for some people - we'll look to fix that in the next release.]
- Open System Preferences
- Click the Security & Privacy preference pane
- Click the Privacy tab
- Navigate to the Accessibility section
- Click the padlock icon and enter your admin password if required
- Tick the checkbox next to TypeIt4Me.app (see the screenshot below)
- Close the System Preferences window, quit TypeIt4Me and relaunch it.
