xx Note about MacOS installation
« Thread started on: Feb 8th, 2017, 3:12pm »

This will no doubt be obvious to anyone familiar with MacOS, but it was not to me!

After downloading the BBCBasic.dmg file, I simply dragged that to the Mac Applications folder.

Wrong! I should have double-clicked the dmg file to open it, and you can then see the BBCBasic application with a more obvious icon. Drag that to the Applications folder!

Note also that my first drag moved the dmg file, whereas the second one copied the application.

Believe me, I'm no more familiar with Mac OS than you are. If I tried to help it would be a case of the blind leading the blind! I'm sure your message will be very helpful to others.
