[Chimera-users] Cannot see menus on MacBook Mojave

Hi Eric,
	This is a current limitation of the Tk windowing toolkit that Chimera uses.  Perhaps future versions of the toolkit will fix this, but for now that's the way it is.  Your two options are:

	1) Don't use dark mode when using Chimera. That might be a pain.
	2) Use the in-window version of the menus rather than the ones at the top of the screen. The in-window menus don't suffer from this problem.

	There is also sort of a third option: use our new program ChimeraX.  It doesn't suffer from this problem.
