I am using a Mac and am not seeing the RunManager icon in my OpenStudio toolbar like is shown in every YouTube tutorial I have seen. How do I run simulations within SketchUp if I can't use RunManager? I've linked below to the YouTube video that I want to follow, but my OpenStudio version is not the same. I have OpenStudio 1.6 downloaded.

YouTube - Batch Running OpenStudio or EnergyPlus Simulations from the OpenStudio RunManager Application

You can not! Now you have to pass through the OS Application (second-last button in your screen shot) to complete simulation settings and run simulation.

Thanks for your reply. I am very new to this program, but it is starting to make sense now. Everything I knew was from that video, so I was very confused. Thanks!
