Disabling native menubars

to use the built-in PUI based menubar instead of the native MacOS menubar, try the following additional startup argument:

--prop:/sim/menubar/native=0

This should normally override any native menubar implementations and fall back to the built-in PUI[1]

Reinstating the Canvas Aircraft Center

This should be also trivial to do by looking at the original patch/diff that disabled the original Canvas based aircraft center: https://sourceforge.net/p/flightgear/fgdata/ci/654a343bbb7eb51b387060515e3415e152d12c2a/ If this is something that people with non-Qt enabled builds want to try, I would suggest to edit $FG_ROOT/gui/menubar.xml according to the following (untested):[2]

                            <binding>
                                    <command>nasal</command>

                                    var haveQtLauncher = fgcommand("open-launcher");
                                    if (!haveQtLauncher) {
                                            # https://sourceforge.net/p/flightgear/fgdata/ci/654a343bbb7eb51b387060515e3415e152d12c2a/
                                            canvas.loadDialog("AircraftCenter");
                                    }
                                    ]]></script>
