After I open a new livescript, the loading bar in the middle of editor never disappears. Also 'Open' 'Save' 'Print' buttons stays Gray. When I close the script matlab asks me if I want to save changes before exit (this is the only way to save the .mlx file). I can compile live scripts. I don't have any problem with regular script files.

Ever since I downloaded the macOS Catalina update version 10.15 my livescripts are unable to open. My livescript editor is always loading and I don't know how to fix it. My livescripts were working perfectly before the update. I've tried changing the region and restarting MATLAB but it does not seem to be working. Any advice?

I talked to Mathworks about this and their answer was: “yeah it doesn’t work in MATLAB2018. Download MATLAB2019!” It worked!
But man, it is so poorly managed. Why don’t they just add an error popup saying “Sorry! Live script is not supported in MATLAB2018 for your OS! Please download Matlab2019 and try again!” Such a simple solution. Wasted so much time of many people’s.
I don’t know if it will solve Everyone’s problem. Maybe some were using 2019 version and having the same problem? Idk. But if you are using 2018 and having the issue, try downloading 2019.
