You deserve a break

Just installed - does nothing


I just bought a new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, running Mac OS Sierra 10.12.4. The program loads and shows preferences, and every time i boot it shows up. But, it simply does not do any breaks. When i click on "Start" or Preview" it simply adds time to the counter and says it will start in 19 minutes, or 1 hour and 59 minutes.

When i signed up to get an account to ask for help on this forum, it asked which version of OS i was running. There were options up to 10.11.x, but not 10.12.x. Is Time out non-functional with Sierra? I saw it on my friend's computer and thought it would be perfect.

Is there any test i should be trying, or setting i could set that would by default always work?

Thank you for any help.

(Yes, i've rebooted and reinstalled. Nothing.)

Re: Just installed - does nothing

Check out this FAQ answer; it should solve the issue.

Thanks for the heads-up about the forum signup form; it was out-of-date (it's in a different place than the contact form, so isn't kept in sync). Now fixed.

But yes, Time Out is completely compatible with Sierra. I'm sorry for the confusion.
