I just got an M2 MacBook Air. It wants me to install Rosetta to use VP. Is that a good idea? Has anyone tried that?

(I have a lot of info in VP. Primate, please tell me there will be an update for the M2 architecture soon!)

    I found the preview 6 link and it seems to be working? [knocks wood] For anyone else who is looking:

    As you've discovered, VoodooPad 5 requires Rosetta to work on Apple Silicon Macs. This requirement is a known issue.

    We investigated upgrading to VoodooPad 5 to run natively on Apple Silicon Macs. It turned out to be a non-trivial undertaking that required removing functionality.

    VoodooPad 6 (currently in preview) runs natively on both Intel and Apple Silicon Macs. Since VoodooPad 5 and VoodooPad 6 use the same file format, you can always try out VodooPad 6 and switch back to VoodooPad 5 if it doesn't work.
