Synfig 1.4.4 not loading on Mac OS Sonoma 14.1.1

Synfig 1.4.4 does not load fully on MacOS. Have installed and allowed it to be opened in the “Privacy & Security” tab. Post that when I try to open SynfigStudio, it starts to load and then crashes. Access to storage is also turned on.

Apple’s crash report kicks in after this. How do I over come this issue ?

Attached the snipped from Crash Reporter.

Hi BobSynfig, Thanks for looking into this. It is Intel 6-Core i7 with Intel UHD Graphics 630. Issue seems to be on Sonoma 14.1.1. On another laptop on 13.x Venture, this issue is not there…
