Not an award-winning letter I’m afraid. However, I would like some help in the matter of the incredible vanishing Audacity? Trying the conventional method of the App Store, I get the “not known” response! Googling it gets me to download it, but my Mac blocks it? Could this be a Long John Silver App? Cy O’Hara Seth Singh says… Audacity is not available on the Mac App Store. You’ll find the download link from http://www.audacityteam.org. As for your Mac blocking it, do you mean that Gatekeeper is preventing you? If you look under Security & Privacy in Settings you notice under the General tab that there are three options. Click the lock symbol to allow changes and choose Anywhere. It should be enabled for ‘Mac App Store and identified developers’, which should work for Audacity, but if it doesn’t try Anywhere. Failing that there could be an issue with your browser which will need further investigation.
