Can't export anything but Rhino files. RH6 Mac

Just upgraded from RhinoBETA to Rhino 6 official and I don’t have any option but Rhino files when exporting. I did a complete clear-out of Rhino (App Cleaner) before installing the official copy of 6 from scratch. Any clue what’s going on?


Check under Preferences > Plug-Ins that the plug-ins for each format you’re interested in are loaded.

That looks like a whole lot plug-ins are missing

@dan, any idea what is going on here?

To check, I restored all of the com.mcneel folders I deleted when clearing out the WIP build but nothing seems to have changed.

Ok I just wiped everything and did a clean reinstall of Rhino. Now there’s plenty in the export menu and it imports other files just fine. I have no clue what happened :man_shrugging:

Thanks for going through the motions and reporting that it now works.

I have an idea what is going on here, but it is just a hunch (@nathanletwory I think it’s [this](, which needs this to get fixed).

@dantaylr have you run the RhinoWIP for V7 Mac by any chance? I’m happy to explain since these bugs aren’t public.
