V27 under macOS Ventura: can't change encoding in preferences
« on: November 12, 2022, 06:31:38 pm »
Running macOS Ventura (13.0.1) on Apple Silicon (tried two different machines). Under "Preferences->Languages->File Extension Manager" can't change the "Encoding". Doesn't work for "All" nor for a specific language.  One can actually see the list of all econdings in the dropdown, but no matter what one attempt to select, will not stick.

Work's under Monterey, but it's running on an Intel computer. I can't say the problem is related to the processor or the OS version. My dime is on the OS version though.

Anyone seen it? Any workaround?

UPDATE:
1) it happens only wit the build that fixes the file drag problem. The standard build does not present the problem.
2) Also, the "Associate with Language" control does not work (same settings panel).

Reproduced. We will look into this. Only happens on these Ventura fix installers.

A workaround (for all combo boxes) is to place focus in the combo box and use cursor up/down to cycle through values.

After putting focus on the combo box, you can use Option+Down to display the combo box list and then use the arrow keys to select an item.

Yeap! I eventually found out (by accident) that the cursor trick works! I can live with that.
And correct: only on the Ventura fix installers.
But noticed that all dropdowns are behaving like that, not only in preferences (ex: "New" File window).
