-(!) Note that Mac OS X Yosemite (10.10 GM1 through 10.10.2) has a serious problem adding applications to the accessibility pane properly. This bug was largely resolved ​in Yosemite 10.10.3. So if you are having problems ​with accessibility under Yosemiteupgrade ​to 10.10.3 or laterand then launch ​Keyboard Maestro. ​+(!) Note that for Catalina continues ​the tradition started ​in Mojave of being difficult ​with the Accessibility permissionsand I have several reports of people having troubles enabling accessibility for Keyboard Maestro Engine. ​ You should report this to Apple using the Feedback mechanism ​Remove the Keyboard Maestro Engine entry from the accessibility permissions, then quit and relaunch the Keyboard Maestro ​Engine (in Keyboard Maestro, File ➤ Quit Engine, File ➤ Launch Engine) to re-add it, and then you should be able to enable it

Note that for Mojave it is fairly common for the accessibility checkboxes ​to be on but Keyboard Maestro ​still not have permission. ​ Generally toggling the accessibility permissions checkboxes off and on resolves the issue. ​ Alternatively,​ deleting the entries ​and letting the system re-create them usually works if toggling is not sufficient.
