I'm seeing a weird issue with two of Kate's menu items, on OS X. When the
menubar sits at the top of the screen as is the default on OS X, 2 the
Tools/Mode menu that selects the document content type contains only disabled
submenus. Normally those submenus (Markup, Sources, Science etc) contain the
known document types; they're created on the fly in the slotAboutToShow()
method of a class (KActionMenu) inheriting QWidgetAction.
What surprises me is that other comparable menus do get populated submenus.
What surprises me even more is that the Tools/Mode menu behaves exactly as
expected when I call
early in main().
This leads me to believe that the code setting up the menu either omits
action(s), or triggers a bug in Qt (5.6.1).
As usual, suggestions pointing me in the right direction appreciated!
