This page previously described a solution for a specific condition in the Mac App Store which would prevent applications obtained from the store from starting. That solution is no longer applicable.
The Mac App Store is entirely responsible for the download and installation process of any application that you obtain there. However, if you are having difficulty starting BBEdit after having obtained it from the Mac App Store, please contact us for assistance and we will do our best to help.
