[Workaround] Menus do not work on MacOS 13

I installed SynfigStudio 1.44-2022-12-25 on my iMac running macOS Ventura version 13.1. The pull down menus (File, Edit, View, etc) will pull down, but when I put my mouse over one of the options, such as New, the line is not highlighted. If I click on New, nothing happens. This makes the application unusable. To quit the app, I have to do option-command-esc and force it to quit. Any help is appreciated!

Hi and welcome here :slight_smile:
It seems there are some incompatibilities between GTK and MacOS 13.
An issue has already been opened about it, maybe you will find some help here: macOS 13 Ventura Can't use pop-up right-click menu · Issue #2976 · synfig/synfig · GitHub

Thank you! I’m glad to know that the arrow keys are a work-around.

Thank you so much! I didn’t know about that workaround until now!
