I have version 184.108.40.206 on my MacBook Pro. I consider it a poor substitute for
the Windows version. I can't turn off the blinking cursor (extremely
annoying!), I can't change the background color (white background gives me a
headache), hotkeys don't work, etc. Is there an alternative binary that I could
Not sure what the problems are there but, for the record, I use the LyX 220.127.116.11
binaries from lyx.org on both my MacBook Pro (M1 chip) and a Windows laptop and
the functionality is pretty much identical. It does appear that you are stuck
with a blinking cursor (since that’s an OS level thing), but I have no problem
changing the background color (did you uncheck “Use system colors”?), and
cursor movement keys and other shortcuts work identically in both versions.
(Maybe you mean something more by “hotkeys”?)
I doubt another MacOS binary would solve your problem but one thing you could
try is to install Parallels or VMWare Fusion and run Linux in a VM. I installed
the ARM version of Ubuntu on my MBP (kind of for kicks) and compiled LyX
18.104.22.168 on it and found that it is actually significantly faster than the MacOS
version (presumably because the latter is not compiled for Apple Silicon and
hence uses Rosetta 2).
How do I uncheck "Use system colors"? Is that somewhere in System
