-Open a Terminal in your Mac, it looks like this:+===== Quick fix (for experienced users) ===== 
 + 
 +Just download it with Curl: 
 + 
 +<code bash> 
 +curl -o ~/Downloads/BootCaT-1.42.dmg https://bootcat.dipintra.it/download/BootCaT-1.42.dmg 
 +</code> 
 + 
 +You'll find it in the Download folder. 
 + 
 +===== Step-by-step guide (for novice users) ===== 
 + 
 +Open a Terminal in your Mac:
  
 {{ :bootcat:help:terminal.png?nolink&800 |}} {{ :bootcat:help:terminal.png?nolink&800 |}}

-===== Why do I have to do this? =====+You will see something like this:
  
-MacOS 10.15.X "Catalina" introduced security features that prevent unsigned applications downloaded from the Internet from running. BootCaT isn't digitally signed yes (we're working on it) and therefore a workaround is needed  to download and run it.+{{ :bootcat:help:console_2.png?nolink |}}
  
-If you download the file directly with a browser, when you try to open the App, you'll get the message "BootCaT.app is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the bin":+Press "Enter" on your keyboard, the App will start downloading, wait until it's finished. You'll see something like this: 
 + 
 +{{ :bootcat:help:console_3.png?nolink |}} 
 + 
 +Now close the Terminal, go to your Downloads folder: 
 + 
 +{{ :bootcat:help:downloads.png?nolink |}} 
 + 
 +Double-click on BootCaT-1.42.dmg, drag the BootCaT app to the Applications folder and then run it like any other app. 
 + 
 +===== Why do I have to do this? ===== 
 + 
 +If you download the BootCaT DMG with a browser, when you try to open the App, you'll get the message "BootCaT.app is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the bin":
  
 {{ :bootcat:help:bootcat_is_damaged.png?nolink |}} {{ :bootcat:help:bootcat_is_damaged.png?nolink |}}
  
 +This happens because MacOS 10.15.X "Catalina" introduced security features that prevent non-notarized applications downloaded from the Internet from running.
 +
 +Since BootCaT hasn't beed notarized yet (we're working on it), at the moment the workaround you see at the top of the page is needed to download and run it.
