Unknown Dialog: receive keystrokes from any application


Hi folks, this just popped up for the first time after a Vectorworks update.  I'm on os x 10.15.5


Has anyone else seen this?

Hi Tim,

I am possibly out in Left field here but it might be due to Catalina and having to give some system permission again after an update.

As you probably have seen since Mojave, macOS keeps tightening the security requirements for multiple applications, and some apps are using some Accessibility features.
From my research ( I haven't tested yet), it seems like the blocking issue can be related to Bluetooth devices more than keystrokes. Maybe a Bluetooth keyboard?
If you have a Bluetooth device, please let me know what it is. I found some information on the Logitech page describing the same behavior.
