The macOS Catalina 10.15.7 upgrade came up for me today, I generally like to keep up-to-date on updates so I let it go ahead. After the update installed (and restarted my Mac), Evernote Skitch kept on crashing every time I tried to open the app with macOS telling me The application "Skitch.app" can't be opened...and the crash report having more sinister details...


Here's a bit more of the crash report...

Looked like the "EDAM" library, whatever it was, was not being found.

This looked strange but I figured maybe what I need to do is get the latest version of Skitch from Evernote to fix it. Short story - that is the solution.

Here's a slightly longer version though...the Skitch version that crashes is v2.9, but the latest downloadable version is v2.8.1. Not sure why the latest is a lower version number, maybe due to automatic update grabbing a more recent version from somewhere else, but there you are.

Having installed the version of Skitch from the website, it worked as usual again...
