Just upgraded to 3.3.10 on Mac to test out the KiCad import function (which worked pretty well, btw) in Schematic Capture.

The problem that I'm having is that only two of the 4 apps will start on my system: Schematic Capture and Component Editor.
PCB Layout and Pattern Editor will not start, no matter what I do. Selecting "Convert to PCB" from Schematic Capture or "PCB Layout" from the Launcher does nothing.
Same thing with trying to launch Pattern Editor from the Launcher. Nothing happens.

Is there any debug logging anywhere that I can look at to try to see what's happening?

Hi Tim,

Please reinstall DipTrace. If you have any problem at any step please let me know.
1. Make sure the system has xQuartz installed. Otherwise download and install the latest stable version of xQuartz, logout and login.
2. Remove folder //Users/macuserdip/DipTrace if it exists.
3. Move DipTrace from Applications to Trash.
4. Open downloaded DMG file, drag DipTrace from there to Applications.
5. Open Applications, find DipTrace there and start the program.
6. The first start takes a while (more than usual). It shows Wine window during the first start informing about building the prefix then the window is closed and DipTrace is started.
