Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion) or 10.9 (Mavericks) users: Why does LexDye not install on my Mac?
A new feature of OS X Mountain Lion and Mavericks may block software installation if the software is not signed by Apple.

To install the LexDye Definition Tracker software on a Mac running Mac OS X Mountain Lion (10.8) or Mavericks (10.9) you will need to change your system preference settings to allow the installation of unsigned software. Before trying to run the LexDye software, enable the installation of Applications from "anywhere" by going to: System Preferences –> Security & Privacy –> General tab.  Click here for more information.

You may need to "unlock" this feature by clicking on the lock on the bottom left corner of the System Preferences screen. After you run the software successfully for the first time, you can change the setting back if you prefer.

Troubleshooting for Mac Users: Why couldn't the LexDye Definition Tracker analyze my document?
Make sure you have dragged the LexDye folder into the Application folder. Make sure the Definition Tracker and the Reset Text Format applications are in the LexDye folder.

Make sure the defined terms in your document are in quotes with at least the first character in uppercase (e.g.”Agreement” or “Board of Directors” or “1934 Exchange Act”)

The document should not contain footnotes or endnotes. All tracked changes in the document need to have been “accepted.”

Select and copy the text to the clipboard using keystroke: ⌘+C while in MS Word. Then go to the LexDye Definition Tracker and click the "Start" button and then the "Paste Text" button.

The processing time for the LexDye analysis will depend on the number of defined terms in your document.
