    I've found a workaround using another client. Download, install and run ShadowsocksX-NG Copy your shadowsocks URL, the same that you use for Outline, looks like ss://[email protected]:1234/?outline=1 and select "Import server URLs" in the app menu. Select "Global mode". Select "Turn Shadowsocks on". That's all. Worked for me.
