QCAD 3.26.1 supports macOS 11.2.3.

A common mistake is downloading the wrong package. Note that there is a separate package for the new Apple Silicone M1 arm64 CPUs which will not work on Intel Macs.

If you are not sure if you have an M1 or an Intel Mac, you almost certainly have an Intel Mac and need to download the package labeled
"QCAD Professional 3.26.1 (a) for macOS 10.14-11.2"
