Installing extensions with macOS Inform 1.68.1 / Big Sur


When I try to install an extension via the menu “File / Install Extension …” nothing happens. No reaction, window pop or whatsoever. Trying under macOS Big Sur and Inform 1.68.1

Can anyone running the same setup confirm this?


Try it with no project window open (from the initial “Welcome” pane).

Ah, yes that’s it. Thanks!


I don’t know why it doesn’t work with a project window open. This may be a known bug in 1.68, but since the bug tracker is down, shrug.

You can always install extensions by shoving into the appropriate directory in ~/Library/Inform/Extensions/ .
