I downloaded the free version of Stencyl from the Stencyl website on my Macbook Pro, and it told me I need the latest version of Java. However, the version of Java it is asking me to download is Java version 8, but the latest, which I have, is 10.-something.

I tried right-clicking and opening the sw.jar file inside the Stencyl folder, using the jar launcher, and it told me I have insufficient workspace permissions.
The logs are as follows:

java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: begin 0, end -1, length 6

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
