After installing Keyman 11.0.220 on MacOS, "About Keyman" shows no info


#1

I had Keyman 11.0.200, I downloaded 11.0.220. After trying to update several times and being told that Keyman could not be replaced because it was in use, I tried restarting the computer and installing the new Keyman, and it seemed to succeed. But now, if I pick “Keyman” in the keyboard list and then choose “About”, the “About screen” shows no version info and has no button to close it. I can only get it to go away by logging out and logging back in again.

@rfaramir fixed the “About” box in https://github.com/keymanapp/keyman/pull/1594 , and 11.0.200 should have the fix…

Can you post a screenshot of what you see?


#3

I have the same problem.

About screen has no top bar. It doesn’t close.

I had to restart the mac.

Info is always on top of anything else on the screen, cannot be closed without logging off and logging back in (or restarting).


#5

I’ve found logging off then logging back in again makes the “About” screen go away. A bit faster than restarting.


#6

Now I’ve just discovered I can actually close the “About dialog”. It is invisible, but there is a link “Close” in the lower right. When I click there, I do see “Close” appear in faint letters, then the box closes.


#7

New discovery: the dialog appears fine in “Dark” mode. (System Preferences > General; the first item is choosing either “Dark” or “Light”). I was in Light mode before. MacOS version 10.14.3 (Mojave).

By default, all users are in light mode.

then perhaps its font color issue.

Thank you @Steve_White and @mayura for the research. I am pretty sure @rfaramir was doing development in Dark mode, so clearly we missed a test in Light mode. We’ll get working on a better solution than “click on the invisible button”. :slight_smile:
