MacOS Users: If you were brought here by an automatic upgrade from within EnVision, please download and install the Mac version above to update. Note you may have to delete the previous version of EnVision from the Applications folder first.

MacOS Catalina users: November 15, 2019 Update: EnVision v1.8.13 has been released which is compatible with MacOS 10.15 Catalina. Please download the Mac version below and install it. More information is available here. The previous version, 1.8.12, had some issues with selection and saving PDFs, which you can read about here. These have been resolved in the v1.8.13.

November 21, 2019 Update: There are some permission issues with v1.8.13 but they have workarounds. Upgrading to 1.8.13 is the recommended version for Catalina users.

Known Issues is v1.8.13:

  • Unable to open documents directory: If you are receiving an error message like this when starting EnVision "LicenseManager::FindValidLicense: Unable to open EnVision documents directory" then you have discovered the higher permissions issue on MacOS Catalina in which applications need to be granted specific permissions to access certain folders, including the Documents folder which EnVision requires to work correctly.
    Workaround: You can grant folder permissions to specific apps from the Security & Privacy section of the System Preferences. Follow the instructions on this tutorial to grant these permissions to EnVision.


  • Install won't update EnVision: If you install EnVision and it doesn't seem like the app is actually being updated then this is another version of the permissions issues in Catalina. The short description is that the EnVision installer doesn't have the correct permissions any more to overwrite files in the Applications directory.
    Workaround: Delete the previous install. The installer can still put EnVision in the application folder so deleting the previous installation before trying to install the new one will fix the issue.


  • White/Invisible text in EnVision: EnVision doesn't work nicely with Dark mode yet. In Dark Mode the system sets the text to white and the background to a dark color. EnVision has custom backgrounds for forms so they do not get changed, however the text uses the default system color so it gets updated to white.
    Workaround: Turn off Dark Mode. Instructions here.


  • On some version of MacOS, 10.13 and lower, there are some rendering issues in Print Mode. If you do not need to upgrade to EnVision v1.8.13 because of MacOS Catalina then we recommend that you remain on EnVision version 1.8.11, which is available in the main download link above.
