I used the beta happily the past few days, but a bug prevents me using it to render the finished work.
OK, no prob, I close it and open good old 2.79… but it won’t. The icon bounces in the dock a few times, and the Mac even switches to the separate workspace (like it should) as if blender is open, but, in a split second, it’s gone. I never see the blender interface appear. Just a few bounces and… nothing.
So, I’m working from the hypothesis that using the 2.8 beta caused this… and I’m searching my Mac for preferences to delete. I can’t find any. Where, if they exist, are pref files or config files that might be affecting these old blenders, keeping them from starting up?
I also tried trashing the folder with the 2.8 beta in it. Nope, same result. Only the beta will open. Earlier versions will not.
