Bug ID: 369207
           Summary: Mode & Highlighting menus remain empty on Mac OS X
           Product: kate
           Version: 16.08
          Platform: Compiled Sources
                OS: OS X
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: NOR
         Component: part

I noticed that the Tools/Mode and Tools/Highlighting menus remain empty, except
for the *disabled* submenus for the various known categories and the items:

"Normal" & "New Filetype" in Tools/Mode
"None" in Tools/Highlighting

Both Kate5 and KDevelop5 are affected.

Curiously this happens only when I use Qt's normal/default Cocoa QPA; when I
start the applications in X11 mode (`-platform xcb`) the menus behave normally.

See the screenshots I'll be attaching.

I'm currently using Kate 16.08.0 and KTextEditor 5.24.0

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Kate5 or KDevelop5
2. Open a document of a supported type for which highlighting definitions exist
3. Check the Tools/Mode and Tools/Highlighting menus

Actual Results:  
See the Cocoa screenshot and notice how the submenus are present but disabled.
The New Filetype menu item has no effect.

Expected Results:  
See the XCB screenshot: populated submenus

The highlighting mode can be selected normally via the status bar widget, so
the issue cannot be explained by missing highlighting definitions.

The same software versions do NOT have the "New Filetype" Tools/Mode menu item
on Linux.
