I suggest mentioning early in the screencast (and/or in the mailing) if an app is not suitable for a certain release (apologies if it was mentioned and I missed it). I have 2 Macs on High Sierra, one by choice and the other by age. I got into the screencast on BBEdit and went to the App Store to get it, where I found that it requires at least Mojave. Oh well, Ulysses is still a pretty good app.
