On freshly installed LTspice on MacOS I have no libraries. In "Top directory is only /, but there is no way to edit this path, also in settings there is no tab described here:

How to change the top directory in LTspice?

Updated settings screens:

maybe, there will be a way to edit configuration file manually, bu I don't know the key:

  • \$\begingroup\$ I don't have the Mac version, but if there's no tab like the one in the linked answer, you can't edit them from the GUI. You could try to add SymbolSearchPath=/path/to/one;/path/to/two and LibrarySearchPath=/another/path;/yet/another/one and see if it works. If this one still doesn't, it most probably means you cannot do it in Mac. Is there anything about this in the Help? \$\endgroup\$ – a concerned citizen Oct 31 '18 at 19:55

    \$\begingroup\$ I suspect it is a bug and should be sent to the developers. I'm observing this behaviour under macOS Mojave, too. -- Christoph \$\endgroup\$ – Krischu Nov 19 '18 at 15:25

The Top directory has no effect. There are all the libraries, but are hidden, because the problem is in combination of dark theme in MacOS.
