How to Update Porterhouse

We are continuously improving Porterhouse, and the way we get those improvements to you is via App Updates. (The version number is displayed at the bottom left of the Porterhouse App window.)

πŸ€– Getting Updates Automatically

If you opened Porterhouse the correct way from your Applications Folder and have Porterhouse Notifications enabled, when a new update is available you will see a "Ready to Install" Notification. Once you're done with your work, fully Quit Porterhouse (by either pressing the ⌘Q keyboard shortcut or clicking Porterhouse > Quit Porterhouse from the menu at the top-left of the screen), open it again, and you will be running the latest version.

NOTE: Simply closing the Porterhouse window (via clicking the red top-right button) and opening again does not suffice.

πŸ” Checking for Updates Manually

If you opened Porterhouse the correct way from your Applications Folder, you can also check if an update is available at any time via clicking Porterhouse > Check for Updates at the menu at the top-left of the screen. If there is one available and you have Porterhouse Notifications enabled you will see a "Ready to Install" notification.

Once you're done with your work, just fully Quit Porterhouse (by either pressing the ⌘Q keyboard shortcut or clicking Porterhouse > Quit Porterhouse from the menu at the top-left of the screen), open it again, and you will be running the latest version.

⚠️ Note: Porterhouse can not update when not started from the Applications Folder

If you don't see an "update available" notification even several minutes after checking, or if Porterhouse doesn't update to the newer version after a full restart, you likely have opened Porterhouse directly from the installer instead of from your Applications folder. Updates cannot be installed when you open Porterhouse this way.

When installing Porterhouse, make sure to drag the App icon into the Applications folder as shown by the arrow. Do NOT double click it. undefined

After that, launch Porterhouse from your Applications Folder.
