Matlab R2017b or R2018 compatible with Mojave (macOS 10.14)?

9 views (last 30 days)
Hi, Did someone already try to use Matlab R2017 or R2018 on the new macOS Mojave (from beta version)? Just to know if I can update safely to this OS when available soon. Thanks in advance, Pierre

2016 MacBook Pro, external drive, Mojave, Matlab 2018b. "bench" runs, Live Scripts in "demos" do not. I remember when MathWorks didn't have a Mac version. I'm happy to wait if that means MathWorks can still justify the expense of supporting the Mac platform.

Hi Pierre,
I just installed Matlab R2018b in my MacBook Pro with macOS Mojave and apparently everything is working fine. I did not test much in depth, but both Matlab and Simulink basic functionalities are working without problems.
Is important to note that although it is working for me I have not read anywhere claiming that Matlab R2018b officially supports macOS Mojave.

Hi all,
MATLAB R2018b is fully supported and qualified for use on macOS 10.14 Mojave. The list of supported macOS versions and hardware requirements for MATLAB can be found on the Mac tab on the MATLAB system requirements page:
Hope this helps.

My R2018b freezes whenever I click anywhere in the editor, while keyboard inputs respond instantaneously. The freeze goes away in about 1 second but come back in next click. Don't know if it makes any difference, I'm on a freshly installed Mojave.

Same for my mac as well, was on the beta for awhile and had this issue. I have uninstalled Matlab 2018 and reinstalled it to no avail.

I have the same problem with the editor. Every time I try to use it, the computer freezes. I am running Sierra on a macbook pro. Does anyone has an idea on what to do?

OMG! Thanks Zhou, your comment is helpful for fixing that freezing issue! Also, i found that there is a feature of Magnet which ignores MATLAB, still we can use Magnet for other applications. I think Magnet seems to have several bugs whenever I tried to use MATLAB IDE in Mojave. For example, after ignoring MATLAB in Magnet, and when I switch any window to MATLAB, there is a freeze in a second. Need to report these to developers of Magnet.

Have the same freeze issue. Although not using any windows management app. If I open a script and try to navigate inside it using keyboard at first then the editor starts functioning as normal. No permanent fix as of now.

I have Mojave and Matlab R2018b, I also had this same issue, freezing when click on the editor. Jiannan Zhou's comment helped, I had used a software called cinch or something for window management. Removed it and it works now. Thanks Jiannan Zhou.

Matlab 2018b Update 2 fixed this issue. To update, Matlab -> Help -> Check for Updates.
