    Hi guys,

    It looks like the option for Assistive Devices is gone in Mavricks, can't use any text expansion tools without it.

    Did anybody find it?

    You have to allow access in the Security preference pane.

    Access to assistive devices changed?

    Hi everyone,

    I would like to hear from the people running 10.9 if you can find where to enable "Access to assistive devices" in Mavericks? It seems the preference panel for these settings has changed and that checkbox I just cannot find.

    Certain apps rely on having access, if not they simple won't run.

    Thanks

    Here you go!

    System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility.
    You need to check the apps you wish to allow. After this, restart and you should be good to go.

    A little tricky to find, but you only have to do it once!

    RESTART?

    Um... no, you do not have to restart.
