Testing the bundled macOS package:

  1. When opening in windowed mode, the macOS menu bar is missing. 1.10.2 release does not do this.


  1. Cursor is 'trapped' when moving the pointer upwards, really needs a video to explain it. This is a pre-existing issue visible in 1.10.2, but looks worse with this PR because the mouse position is invisible. In 1.10.2 the OS menu bar appears and the system cursor appears, so perceptually it's less bad. cursor-trap

Full-screen mode does hide the OS menu bar.
Truebrain asked if this PR also addresses #8067 - it doesn't.

I was hoping this setting would only influence full-screen applications .. but for some reason it also does windowed .. which is not what I expected. I will leave MacOS development to the pros ;)
