I'm using latest MacOS Sierra and I'm not able to enable access for Assistive Device in it. When i run Shortcat it shows me an alert to enable access for Assistive Device and opens up Accessibility Settings from there. But Shortcut is not listed in there. I love the app and would like to use it on my new OS. Please refer to screenshots attached.

    You should go for the setting under security and privacy.
    then go to the privacy tab.
    then select accessibility on the bar to the left
    then scroll down the list on the right till you see the cat.

    I'm using the beta version on Sierra. and it's crashing on every activation.

    Oh. I was trying to run it from the download folder.
    After moving it into the application folder and running it from there, things work alright.
    No crashes for me.
