Download button not showing up in VEX V5 Text on Mac

I have downloaded V0.9 of VEXcode V5 Text v0.9 (19.07.3018 ) on a macbook. After connecting the brain to my Mac using the USB cable the download button does not show up.

Is there a driver I need to install for this to work? Or a firmware update?

thanks!

No drivers are needed.
Can you provide a few more details on your Mac ? Which version of OSX, what type of USB ports ?

Hi, its MacOS High Sierra Version 10.13.6. USB A port.

Are you sure that the robot is, in fact, connected? Try using other software (e.g. modkit) and see if that works. If it doesn’t you’re probably not connected. In that case, just kinda shove the connection parts together.

thanks, I switched a different cable and it’s connected now!
