Javelin3 for macOS - INSTALLATION HELP

Videos providing help for Mac users downloading files when running Javelin3 are also available - see videos here

Installing: Javelin3 is an application provided by an Apple approved and identified developer, Drumlin Security Ltd. If you have a warning message from Apple regarding the app security then check your Settings facility (the cogwheel icon in the screenshot below):

JM3 status bar

and select the Privacy & Security option, then scroll down until you see the Security heading. Select App Store and identified developers and that should solve the problem. Unlock the facility to set the option and then lock it again to save and exit from this facility (on some versions of macOS the display will look slightly different from this example):

When Javelin3 for macOS is run, an icon for the program will appear at the bottom of the screen and a menu of functions at the top left of your screen. If the menu is not visible click on the program icon at the bottom of the screen and the menu should then appear at the top left. Note that for security reasons the macOS "Terminal" app should not be running when Javelin3 is used.

For most recent versions of Javelin3 for macOS, the Javelin3 menu bar, File menu, will include an entry marked Catalogs... - if there is no catalog entry, as is the case for older Javelin versions, drmz files must be downloaded directly using the Javelin built-in Download facility or via Safari or another file transfer facility. The latest versions of Javelin3 also start with a startup page as well as the menu, for quick access to the core features and recently viewed files.

NOTE: If the Mac has a Terminal app session running then Javelin3 will close with a warning message, as a security measure. The solution is simply to close the terminal session on the Mac and it will allow Javelin3 to run. For more details please see the : Apple Mac Terminal User Guide page on this issue
