Vectorworks 2020 Mac Security Issue

Recommended Posts

Vectorworks 2020 just requested for authorization to access keystrokes from other applications on my Mac.  Why would it do that?

Interesting question.


I checked my Security Settings > Privacy

and I have no VW entry in Input-Monitoring.


Can't remember if I was asked too but I think I would have denied that request.

Are you running MacOS 10.15 Catalina or newer? If so — it may not be anything nefarious according to the following Apple Support thread, but I’d be interested to hear from someone at Vw to confirm if this is the case. Might even make for a helpful VwKB article.
