I don't have High Sierra yet, so I haven't seen the problem (and I might not, as it seems to affect only systems whose language is set to something other than English), but that core update doesn't seem to have made any visible difference. The menu items are still not part of the application window. Or am I simply misunderstanding what should happen?

File info attached.


I only move the menu entries to jAlbum's window if you're running High Sierra.

That's what I thought. But that means that I really don't understand David's post:

I've made a quick fix that moves the menu to the window no matter what look and feel you're using.

Hello,

Installing a previous version does not solve, however, the new ".jar" file is more useful with the menus available (in part available, the "preferences" are still not available and the shortcut CMD+, does not work).

Thanks and regards
Henri

With the fix, the menus are moved to jAlbum's window when you're on OS X High Sierra, no matter if you're using the standard Mac or Darcula Look & Feel.

Ah, now fixed. Just do a core update. Now "About" will be under Help, Preferences under Tools and Quit under File just like on Windows.

OK, understood. I'm holding off on High Sierra because I'm away from home, with no fallback if the update goes wrong. The conversion of the file system is the piece that makes me nervous. My Macbook has SSD, so it would be switched to the new scheme - inherently dangerous!

IPad updates to APFS seem to have gone fine and Apple has made bigger migrations before - Power PC to x86 - relatively successfully. But there is no substitute for doing a backup just before an OS upgrade.

I have nothing to which to back up anything, not that there's much on this machine that couldn't simply be downloaded and reinstalled. But if, by some fluke, the update bricked the laptop, the nearest Apple store is a solid 90 minutes away. Spending the next three weeks with nothing but a smartphone wouldn't be a disaster, but it would certainly be irritating as hell. ;)

This menu problem is caused by a bug Apple introduced in High Sierra. It affects a multitude of Java apps and was reported to Apple during the beta period, still Apple only fixed it for some English versions of High Sierra. I expect Apple to fix this in the next update. Put some pressure on them by reporting this problem to them too. This is not the first time Apple breaks non-Apple software during OS update. I spot an arrogance from their part...

While waiting for a fix, this workaround has been reported to work:

1) Switch the preferred OS language to English

or

2) Edit the "Info.plist" file of jAlbum according to the steps below:

In Finder Right-click on JAlbum in Applications and select Show Package Contents
Select Contents
Open Info.plist for editing
Find the line that says <key><CFBundleAllowMixedLocalizations></key> and change the line below it from <true/> to <false/>
Save the changes

Now start jAlbum, this should resolve the issue, the negative side effect meaning that things like folder dialogs used by jAlbum will show as English when they should be in the language you've set your OS to.
