Yosemite Incompatibility

I'm trying to complete several projects using Snapz Pro and 2.5.4 is not compatible with Yosemite. Is there a work around now????

Not (fully) Yosemite compatible

I have the same problem after upgrading to Yosemite: Snapz Pro X works the first time and then stops working. To make it work again you have to shut down and restart the computer (in my case MacBook Pro Retina). Looking forward to a fix!

Snapz Pro works well the first time after rebooting then stops doing so (under Yosemite) is 2.5.4 totally compatible with Yosemite?

No Ambrosia Audio Support w Yosemite

Since I upgraded to Yosemite (Mac OS10.10) I have been unable to capture Mac Audio when making a movie. S/W will not install Ambrosia Audio Support. Hope a fix is on its way soon.

To make Snapz Pro X work properly with multiple monitors on Mavericks, go to System Preferences->Mission Control and uncheck the "Displays have separate Spaces" checkbox:

We're working on a longer-term solution to this, but this is a work-around.

I posted a support topic on the subject; there's a work-around:

...and we are working on a fix as well.

2.5.4 Doesn't Work on My Primary Display

I can still fake it by moving my work over to my secondary display before taking my screen shots, but the Snapz Pro splash screen doesn't come up there. Fortunately, I've committed my main usages to memory, so I can still do 99% of what I need to, tho it's a tad inconvenient. But it appears that Apple's new, "improved" support for multiple displays blindsided the folx at Ambrosia with this one.

I look forward to 2.5.5.
