1002 osascript is not allowed to send keystrokes.

Reported by Doug Harrison | April 18th, 2020 @ 03:23 PM

The logic board was replaced in my Macbook Pro (running Catalina). When I try to run the "Add with Summary" command to send to OmniFocus I'm now getting the following error (in OmniFocus):

1002 osascript is not allowed to send keystrokes.

I checked System Preferences and the "OmniFocus" checkbox is checked (under MailMate) in the Automation area. Are there other permissions I need to make sure exist so this works properly again?

    I believe it's the “MailMate > System Events” you need in the Automation part of System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy”.
    Let me know if that does not help.

    System Events (under MailMate) was already checked in the Automation part of System Preferences. I went ahead and unchecked it, closed MailMate, checked it again and then started MailMate and this did not solve the issue (still getting the message).

    I resolved the issue.

    1. Closed OmniFocus and MailMate applications.
    2. Went to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Accessibility - and REMOVED MailMate and OmniFocus from the list (didn't just uncheck the checkboxes, but removed them from the list).
    3. Started OmniFocus and MailMate applications.
    4. Closed OmniFocus and MailMate appliations.
    5. Went to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Accessibility - and ADDED MailMate and OmniFocus applications to the list.

    Now I no longer have the error popup when I run the "Add with Summary" command. Hopefully this helps someone else. So it ended up being an issue with "Accessibility" and not "Automation".
