Stellarium 11.4 is crashing my macbook pro under certain conditions.
If I switch between full screen mode and windowed mode, there is a chance that
my mac will freeze. The mouse still moves but I cannot click on anything. Force
quitting is not an option since I can't access the apple icon. Interestingly,
I can still vary screen brightness and sounds levels using the keyboard, but those
actions, don't prompt the sound and brightness icons which usually show up.
I think the mac works, but the screen is frozen. Nothing but a
forced restart solves the problem.

Can you show log.txt?
Instead of using the Apple Menu, the keyboard shortcut Command-Option-Escape should also bring up the Force Quit Menu. Maybe that is a workaround until this can get fixed in this code? I have seen similar behavior on my Mac Book Pro, but with me, when I click the Quit button in Stellarium it freezes and I need to use the Force Quit option to close the program.
I am getting the same issues. sometimes nothing works (no cmd-opt-esc, nothing), have to hard power off. where is log.txt found? - Matt
I'm having some issues with the Mac version. I've haven't ever used Stellarium before this, so I'm not certain what SHOULD happen when launched, but here's what happens to me:
My entire desktop becomes Stellarium. I'm in a 360 degree country side. Paris, France is what it states at the bottom. (It's like some script gets run upon launching, maybe?) I'm able to pan around by click-scrolling the mouse. Some VERY nifty stuff comes up in the left-hand corner when I click the mouse and release.
But, that's it. No buttons do anything (except F3, see below), and I'm not able to do anything or access anything else. I can't really get out of this full screen takeover.
The only way I can escape is by pressing F3 and then clicking on the Finder, and then force quitting Stellarium.

If anyone can direct me as to how to access the log.txt, I'll post it here.
Don't hijack a thread. Start a new one.
These are issues with Qt, not with Stellarium. So there is nothing we can do about it. Period.
Qt was just updated, and in my initial tests, I am not seeing the quit behavior any more. I'll test some more to be certian. The next release we put out will use 4.8.4.
