Mac Specific Questions

Q: Do I need to be connected to the internet?
Q: When I close the app and try reopening it, nothing happens.
Q: I can't hear any audio when clicking any of the sound buttons.
Q: The colors are washed out on my external display.
Q: I could not find the answer to my question.


Q: Do I need to be connected to the internet?
No. All content is loaded directly from your computer, so there is no need to be online.

Q: When I close the app and try reopening it, nothing happens.
This most likely means you've closed the app by clicking the window's x-button rather than quitting from the menu bar.
Simply click the app-icon again. This should display the app's particular menu bar at the top of the screen. Then click the app's name which will display a drop-down menu, and finally click 'Quit'.

Now you'll be able to reopen the app by clicking the app-icon again.

Q: I can't hear any audio when clicking any of the sound buttons.
In some cases, for instance if your Mac is connected to a screen via a HDMI-cable, audio will be delayed.
This is a general Mac-problem and does not only affect our apps, but since a lot of our audio-files are short chances are they will not be heard at all.
Try clicking any audio twice or even three times to see if you can hear the sound.

Q: The colors are washed out on my external display.
When your Mac is connected to an external screen of another brand than Apple using a HDMI-cable, the colors can be washed out.
This is a general Mac-problem and affects all apps. At this moment Apple does not seem to have any other solution than to purchase an Apple display.
