Hi Pierre-Henri,

Thanks for your feedback.

It could be that you already had some preferences activated (if you installed a 
previous version of TeXmacs).
In the retina settings, you can reset to the default to give it a fesh restart.

Be careful about the theme you are using.  As I said in a previous email,
there are four themes now.  When using the 'Legacy' theme, you may experience
problems with the colors.  In the other three themes, these problems should
be solved (this is most likely the case for the 'Bright' and 'Dark' themes,
whereas I expect the existence of minor bugs with the 'Native' theme).
As the name indicates, the 'Dark' theme should be nice if you like to
work with dark mode.

(Reminder: the theme can be chosen in 'Edit -> Preferences -> General ->
User interface theme'.)

Yes, I guess that the native menus are the only source of serious crashes.
