I'm having issues editing Text on Scriptation for Mac

When working with Text Boxes and Sticky Notes, we are aware of some challenges users face when editing text on Mac.

To edit a word mid-sentence, you are able to use the mouse to click into the text field. However, the arrow keys are often problematic while navigating within the text.

TIP: Try holding OPTION and then navigating with the left and right arrows only.

What's happening is that there's an issue in macOS Catalina that limits how Scriptation can use the text field. We, along with many other app developers, are eagerly awaiting a fix on the Apple side for this.

However - this issue has been resolved in the release of macOS Big Sur! To get the most out of Scriptation, we highly recommend that users update.

NOTE: Having issues clicking with the mouse as well? Make sure that you are running the latest version.
