Right click in grasshopper for mac not working

Just running a quick tutorial on grasshopper and I have fallen at the first hurdle. I have created a point parameter in grasshopper, but when I right click to set on point and reference rhino nothing happens, but parameter turns green - no drop down appears. Any pointers?

Running Rhino for mac 5.5.3

Hi - that seems to work fine on my system running 5.5.3.
Could you please run the Rhino About command, click on the More info… and then the Copy to clipboard button and paste the content back into a reply here?

Thanks for that, Peter. Can you by any chance test to see if this works as it should in the Rhino 6 for Mac Beta?

@dan - any ideas on this one?

The only thing I can see here that is preventing us from reproducing this is that it is likely a High Sierra-only issue.

I’ll see if I can boot up High Sierra and reproduce this, but I doubt we will patch it because [reasons]. Given that we are not able to reproduce it on Mojave, I suspect it is a High Sierra-only bug…but that is pure speculation. If it were, I would expect we’d be hearing about it more, so it may be a combination of things.

Are you able to see if you get the same behavior in the latest RhinoBETA for V6?

I am unable to reproduce this in Rhino 5 for Mac 5.5.3 on High Sierra 10.13.6.

@peter15 I notice you have a couple of third-party kernel extensions…

I wonder if Duet Display is getting in the way here. Can you please boot macOS to safe mode and see if the bug is still present when these extensions are disabled?

Hi Dan, Wim.

I have changed to a standard mouse instead of the blue tooth apple mouse and this now works. Thank you for all of your help.

I’m glad it’s working. That is odd though as I use an Apple MagicMouse (Bluetooth). It’s not a great mouse for Rhino though (I switch to a three-button mouse with a proper scroll wheel when modeling).
