I’ve just bought Glyphs and now I’m trying to get familiar …
I have a german interface – I’m trying to translate my error messages to english.
In preferences under “updates” (Aktualisierungen) when pushing “check now” I got an error message:
— begin —
Error on updating!
Glyphs cannot be updated if it is started from a volume without write permission (e.g. Disk Image or CD/DVD). Copy Glyphs to the application folder and update from there.
— end —
But Glyphs app is in my application folder (on a SSD).
What can I do?
- Make sure you are actually running the app from the Applications folder (and not a copy that accidentally still lies around somewhere else): Cmd-click on the icon in your Dock to reveal the app in Finder.
- If it is in the Applications folder, try restarting your Mac, then try again.
- If that does not help, check permissions, and possibly delete the .plist files as described in the ByHost Permissions chapter in this tutorial: https://glyphsapp.com/tutorials/how-to-install-your-glyphs-license
(PS: Du kannst auch Deutsch schreiben im Forum.)
The updater does that sometimes. I didn’t figure out why. Please re-download the app from the website.
O.k., I did check that I’m running Glyphs from the Applications folder and restarted. Did not help.
Then I redownloaded the app. Installed and started. Now I got the message about a new version (2.5b)!
BTW in Preferences > Addons > Modules I pushed the button “Install Modules”. I had to give my permission and then something seemed to be working … But how can I check if the modules are actually installed? (There was no message at all about failure or success)
Because the handbook and a lot of help is in English I would like to change the interface language to English too (it is now in German). How can I do this?
The localization can be deactivated in preferences > User.
