    Hi Andrew,

    I have a quick question about signing in Sefaira in Revit.
    After clicking the icon of Sefaira in 'Add-Ins' in Revit, I got an error message:

    Line: 2
    Char: 32158
    Error: Object doesn't support or method 'addEventListener'
    Code: 0
    URL: https://identity.trimble.com/trimble-identity/resources/js/lib/jquery.min.js?cb=20200915

    Meanwhile, the 'fill in blank' of pop up window for filling in the Email address does not show up.

    How could I fix this one?
    Thanks a lot

    Hi Alan,
    WIthout all the details, that looks like a trimble id error which could potentially be solved with this patch: https://support.sefaira.com/hc/en-us/articles/360030523211-Revit-Plugin-Troubleshooting-July-2019
    If you are still having trouble I recommend raising the issue in the forums where there are more people monitoring for support.

    Will Trimble have a Sephaira for Mac Big Sur eventually or is the future for Revit only?
