 On modern macOS, you enable Accessibility permissions by opening System Preferences,​ going to the Security & Privacy preferences,​ and in the Privacy pane select Accessibility and ensure that both Keyboard Maestro and Keyboard Maestro Engine are ticked. On modern macOS, you enable Accessibility permissions by opening System Preferences,​ going to the Security & Privacy preferences,​ and in the Privacy pane select Accessibility and ensure that both Keyboard Maestro and Keyboard Maestro Engine are ticked.
  
-(!) Note that 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 OS X Mojave ​(Betas at least) has a serious problem adding accessibly ​for Keyboard Maestro ​Engine.  ​Specifically after it is added, you can click the checkbox but it wont necessarily turn on.  ​Resolve this by deleting the Keyboard Maestro Engine entry from the Accessibility list and relaunching Keyboard Maestro Engine (Keyboard Maestro File ➤ Quit Engine, File ➤ Launch Engine), and then you can check the checkbox to enable accessibility permissions.+(!) 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.
  
-(!) Note that OS X Mojave (Betas at least) has a further serious issue in that even after it claims ​to have enabled accessibility ​permissions,​ the system may still be refusing to allow access to the event queue (symptoms include not being able to set hot keys and typed keystrokes not working (including Command-V for paste)). ​ Restarting your Mac seems to resolve this.+If you continue ​to have problems with enabling Accessibility ​permissions, ​ensure you only have one copy of Keyboard Maestro on your Mac, that it is in the /​Applications folder, that you moved it there **using ​the Finder** ​and restart and try again.
  
-If you continue to have problems ​with enabling Accessibility permissionsensure ​you only have one copy of Keyboard Maestro on your Mac and restart and try again.+If you continue to have problems, you can use the `tccutil reset Accessibility` command to reset the Accessibility permissions.
