Aered crashes on High Sierra

Postby Richard » Fri Dec 08, 2017 12:20 pm

Some Aered users with NVIDIA graphics cards have reported that Aered crashes immediately after they upgraded their Mac to High Sierra.

It seems that a graphics feature called "OpenGL accumulation buffer" has stopped working on High Sierra and this results in the crash.

We were able to work around this by disabling use of the OpenGL accumulation buffer. The downside is that the music notation will no longer be nicely antialiased though the quality of exported PDFs will be unaffected.

Here is a link to this version of Aered if you experience the crash and would like a temporary workaround until we fix it properly. ... nVidia.dmg
