What is “Accessible Folders” in Preferences?

Pixave runs in Apple Sandbox mode, a technology that vastly improves app security and is highly recommended by Apple for Mac apps.

Because of this, you must give Pixave access to parent folders of files for which you want certain features, such as import image, access image, to work.

By default, Pixave does not have permission to read the contents of folder. To allow Pixave to read from folder, simply click “+” button in Preferences.

To make these features work everywhere one and for all. simply choose your entire user folder and, If applicable, your individual external drives. (For security reasons, you cannot choose your entire system drive.)

Note: This option is only for a referenced-mode library
