Enabling Accessibility access

Shortcat requires Accessibility access to function.

On launch, if Shortcat does not have Accessibility access, it will present the Welcome screen to request permissions.

To enable Accessibility for Shortcat:

  1. Click the Request permission button on Welcome screen
  2. macOS will prompt to open System Preferences
  3. Click the Lock button in the bottom left hand corner of the Security & Privacy preferences pane
  4. Enable the checkbox beside Shortcat within the Accessibility app list
  5. If done correctly, Shortcat's Welcome window will focus and indicate it has permissions.

See screenshots below for clarification.

If you have issues, try removing Shortcat from the Accessibility app list, and following the steps above.
