Hi,

I use an intel Macbook pro with macOs 11.

Inside my Applications folder I have created a Viewers folder. I then copied YACReader and YACReaderLibrary in that folder. Both work well. From anywhere in Finder comics can be opened with YACReader. And YACReaderLibrary is detecting well all my comic folders.

The problem is when I try to read a comic from within YACReaderLibrary. Then I get the message: "YACReader not found. There might be a problem with your YACReader installation." How can I tell YACReaderLibrary the location of YACReader? They're actually in the same folder.

Thank you!

macos moves to a random folder the apps when they are running to avoid them access resources based on relative paths outside their own package, so YACReaderLibrary can’t find YACReader next to it and it looks for it in the Applications folder.

There is no workaround so far, I will try to add a setting for this in future releases.
