Mac OS X should show the menus at the top bar and the keyboard shortcuts should use the command key instead of ctrl (or both variations).

The command key support was added. Now all shortcuts with Ctrl+char were converted to Cmd+char in Mac OS X platform.

Each element can contain a shortcut="..." attribute and other attributes for platform specific variants if they're preferred:

You probably already have this prioritized, but as a long-time Mac user, native menus are not even on my radar for Aseprite feature requests. The current UI is charming!


dacap commented Aug 30, 2017

@irskep actually the menu is not as important as another feature (that requires the menu):

So implementing ⌘H and ⌘M requires the native menu, and something nice would have the entire menu available in the top bar (and options to show/hide the pixel art UI menu).
