Apple M1 chip support

In version 97, Abstract began supporting machines that use Apple’s M1 chip. 

If you have this CPU configuration and are running a version previous to the 97 release, you may get the following error:

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

If possible, update to the latest version of Abstract. If you can't update right now, 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. On the modal that opens, mark the Open using Rosetta checkbox.

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