INFO - Can I run the MacSign Plug-in (rev. 1.0.2) for Adobe AI on Mac with an M1 chip?

Modified on Fri, 16 Sep 2022 at 02:18 PM

Since version 2.0.0, MacSign Plug-in runs natively on Apple M1 chips and Intel based processors.

Please download the latest version!

Starting with certain models introduced in late 2020, Apple began the transition from Intel processors to Apple silicon in Mac computers.

How do I check what chip I have?

On Mac computers with Apple silicon, About This Mac shows an item labeled Chip, followed by the name of the chip:

To open About This Mac, choose Apple menu > About This Mac.

Rosetta emulation

Until now the MacSign plug-in (1.0.2) only works natively on Intel based processors.

However, if you own a new Mac with an M1 chip it is also possible but with an emulation software called Rosetta.


You’re probably already using Rosetta without realizing it. The first time you launched an app that requires it, an alert appeared to tell you the Rosetta is needed and ask for your permission to install it. After the installation, Rosetta is automatically available to any app that needs it. 

Open Adobe AI using Rosetta

To open Adobe AI using Rosetta, perform the following steps:

  1. Open the Finder.
  2. Select Adobe AI under Applications.
  3. Inside the folder, select Adobe AI again and open the shortcut menu.
  4. Choose Get Info.

5. Check the box 'Open using Rosetta'
