Beamer crashes on macOS Mojave 10.14

The crash is caused by Beamer (version 3.3 and earlier) trying to listen to keyboard events to intercept the media keys, but not being allowed to do so.

The workaround is to enable access for Beamer:

  1. Open System Preferences ( > System Preferences…)
  2. Go to “Security & Privacy”
  3. Go to the “Privacy“ tab
  4. Select “Accessibility” in the list on the left
  5. Click the lock to make changes (bottom right)
  6. Allow access to Beamer

Beamer 3.3.3 with media key support disabled will be available soon.
