    I have an app that I purchased through the App Store that appears in my App Store update list. However, several generations back, I switched over to downloading the updated directly from the developer, as the updates appeared there quicker.

    I have never updated the app from the App Store update lists since. I wish to completely delete this app from my App Store monitoring. How can I do this?

    I wonder if you deleted the app from your computer, and went and downloaded it from the developer (and not the App Store), if your Mac would stop notifying you of Mac App Store updates. Give that a try?

    Nice suggestion, thanks. Unfortunately, the App Store still offers me the update.
