I just bought a Macbook 13 (2017) without touch bar.
I'm having this issue in which in order to make it work with my Asus PB279Q, I have to start in safe mode. Once the display is working in safe mode if I re start the macbook again to normal boot, the display will continue working just fine.
Weirdly enough, if I disconnect the display and reconnect; the screen just goes dark. I can see the screen being detected in settings, but I can't see anything on screen. In order to make it work again I need to repeat the process, 1)boot in safe mode 2) boot in normal mode again.
I'm using a Kanex usb-c to hdmi cable I bought in the Apple Store, supposedly 4k capable and compatible with mac.
Wondering if anyone has had this weird issue ?
