Hello, I have downloaded the Zip File and I am trying to download the software to my Mac but it keeps giving me a notification that I can’t open the file due to Apple not being able to confirm if it contains Malware. Is there a trick to get around this? Can anyone help me?
It’s quite straightforward. Open the Seamly2D app in the finder (using right-click) and choose Open. You will see a dialogue saying MacOS cannot open Seamly2D because it’s not trusted and giving options to cancel or delete. Choose Cancel.
Now do the same thing again - this time you will be offered “Open Anyway” “Cancel” or “Delete”, choose Open Anyway and Seamly2D will start.
From then on you can open Seamly2D from the launchpad or by double clicking on patterns and everything will work as normal. You need to follow the same process with SeamlyME and repeat it when you update the software.
Now you have to go to your system settings and in privacy and security allow the program to open.
With release 2023.2.6 (Release 2023.2.6.229 · FashionFreedom/Seamly2D · GitHub) and later the mac app is signed and notarized, so all the workarounds are no longer required. Just download, extract from zip and dmg and run.
There are downloadable installation instructions for MacOS Monterey here.
