[Solved] Astah’s Two Bugs on macOS High Sierra

These bugs are fixed in macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 update. (Oct.31, 2017)


■Product and version:

All of the editions and versions


There are two bugs when you run Astah on macOS High Sierra.

  1. Astah’s Main Menu does not appear if you run Astah in a language other than English
  2.  You cannot tell which button is toggled on Astah’s diagram tool bar


There are two ways to solve the problem (1).

A: Launch Astah in English
Click on the Apple Menu on the top left of the screen. Go to [System Preferences] – [Language and Region] and bring English to the top in the [Preferred languages:] field, then launch Astah.

B: Move Astah menu within the Astah window

  1. Right-click on Astah’s app file and click [Show Package Contents]
  2. You will find the “info.plist” file in the [Contents] folder. Open it with text editor.
  3. Change the value of “-Dapple.laf.useScreenMenuBar” to false and save.
  4. Now Astah main menu appears within Astah’s window.
