I got an ugly Bug on this new version.
Running OSX 10.11.3
On a MacBook Pro Retina 15-inch, mid 2014)
2.5Ghz Intel Core i7
Nvidia Geforce GT750M 2048MB ram
As soon as I try to click "Audio Project" in the settings, I get a Segmentation fault in MainThread at address 0x0
and the application totally crashes.
Can not set the Audio Project settings at all.
That's no good.
Did you try new user settings?
Creating new user settings allowed me to access the Audio Project settings.
Seems they Broke between 8.5.2 > 8.5.3
It's good always having to create new settings from scratch all the time.
It would be cool if each time you opened Avid you had to rebuild all your settings etc. I think that would be fun.
