File access on macOS Catalina

Hi. RawTherapee 5.7 is working for me on macOS Catalina (it’s starting), but I cannot access my files due to the new system security. The problem is, that RawTherapee doesn’t ask for access as like other apps. And unfortunately I cannot add it the manually to the system preferences. Any ideas?

Catalina support is beta at this point. You should be able access files in ~ and ~/Pictures

@lupurus As a temporary workaround for file access you can open RT through the terminal to regain access to the file system.

@lupurus Welcome to the forum.

It could be a permissions or security thing. For the past while, the Mac has been verifying apps aggressively. I don’t have one so I cannot tell you how to bypass some of those checks.
