Looks like we could “Ask Apple”…


I would like to know how an open source project which relies on freely-shared plugins is supposed to exist on a platform that is making it harder on accessibility.

I have had a developer account for many years but that doesn’t mean I like jumping through these hoops after spending too long figuring them out. It would be nicer if you, as a user, could simply tell the system: “Pd can load whatever dynamic libs.”

It’s the same situation for other environments such as Max.
