Abstract does not currently support machines that use Apple’s M1 chip. Users with this CPU configuration may run into the following error:

"The extension “Abstract” is not compatible with your computer’s CPU architecture. Please contact the extension's developer directly for assistance."

We plan to support Apple M1 chips in the future. In the meantime, you can use the following steps to get working again:

  1. Quit Sketch and Abstract.
  2. Navigate to your Applications folder.
  3. Right click on Sketch and choose Get Info.
  4. A modal will open. Choose Open using Rosetta.

Apple has also provided these instructions for opening unsupported plugins using Rosetta.
