I am using the
brew install emacs
version of gui-based emacs. After using the mac shortcut to access the Menu bar, I am able to use the mnemonic to access the individual top level menu items: e.g.
ALT-F for file
The problem is that then hitting down arrow key or return does not dropdown the menu items. Well .. with two exceptions: the
Alt-E (Emacs) and Alt-H (Help)
dropdowns actually work. The others? Nothing happens. Only by using the Mouse (which is unacceptable to me for common commands in an editor).
Any hints/ideas on this?
