I wanted to give a shot to this. There is the similar problem that when a dialog is open there is no default main menu and this is quite ugly on Mac.  would it be possible to have menus which are meaningful when in an embedded editor or in a dialog. For dialogs even a menu without entries would be ok, since the dialog has the mouse focus, just not empty menus...

Joris, can we work out a solution for this?

The main menu is empty for TeXmacs input widgets (MacOS; what to do under Linux or Windows?).  Reminder: TeXmacs input widgets are input fields in widgets that can be edited as TeXmacs text, such as the headers and footers when doing Document -> Page, or when editing a macro using Tools -> Macros.

Of course, the precise semantics is not extremely clear.  Things like "Save" should not work in TeXmacs input widgets.  So it would be good to export a predicate 'embedded-buffer?' to Scheme for testing whether we in a TeXmacs input widget buffer, and adjust certain menus and keyboard shortcuts accordingly.
