Common Issues

Accessibility permission issues

Things to try:

  • Remove the existing Shortcat entry from the Security and Privacy - Accessibility list
  • Re-request permissions by launching Shortcat
  • Enable Accessibility access

Update failure

Re-install Shortcat by either brew install -f shortcat or download the latest version and overwrite your existing copy in /Applications.

Seeing not labelled in the navigation list

If you see this, that means Shortcat was not able to get a label from that particular element.

This usually happens when the developers of the target app did not tag their elements correctly with the appropriate label.

Reach out to the developers of your favorite applications and ask them to make the apps more accessible.
