The native OS X appearance is deprecated, unfortunately,
due to the highly buggy implementation of native menus of Qt.
We managed to get things working appropriately in Qt4,
but the ARM port requires Qt5.  We soon plan to move to Qt5
for all supported operating systems.

In the Mac OS X port, TeXmacs uses the standard OS X global menu bar (at the top of the screen) instead of a menu bar inside the window. It also uses a special visual style, that tries to adhere to the general OS X appearance.

This works as expected in the port for Intel-based processors.

In the ARM (M1) port, however, TeXmacs draws the menu bar inside the window, leaving the global menu bar empty. Furthermore, the visual style is different. See attached screenshots for comparison.

I have tested this on macOS Ventura 13.0.1 with both TeXmacs-2.1.1-arm.dmg and TeXmacs-2.1.2-arm.dmg. TeXmacs-2.1.2.dmg, the non-ARM (Intel) version, works as expected.

Note that this is not related to bug #59894, which concerns the placement of specific menu bar items.
