Description

As demonstrated at ASC, on both an macOS 10.12 and 10.13, the menubar items plus the Apple icon become inactive after launching an ISIS GUI, while the GUI's window interaction is working.

Jesse came up with a work around:

  1. Launch GUI
  2. Make other window active
  3. Go back to GUI

Now the menus in the menu bar should work.

Opened this for your tracking of it.

just to let you know, it's totally not you, but QT causing this. Just installed Ginga, the FITS file viewer that heavily uses QT, and it had exactly the same issue with the menu bar. Had to click away and come back to get the menu working.

The next version of ISIS3.6.0 uses a newer version of QT and does not exhibit this behavior.
