Installing BrightSlide for Mac (beta)

Our BrightSlide add-in for Windows has a one-click installer application but things on a Mac are a little more challenging due to policies of Apple and Microsoft. For now, the installation of the add-in is a semi-manual process. It’s not difficult and just requires the download of our installer script file and the installation of two fonts.
