Thanks to you and Henrique. Painfully slow progress here I'm
afraid, but there are a few fixes in today's upload of
Some comments on your (and Henrique's) test results follow.

True. I have no idea how to make letter navigation work, or if
it's possible at all without serious hacking on GTK.

I guess we could detach ctrl-f2 from gretl's own menu, then it
might work to access the screen-top menu.

Hmm, I can arrow-key to "No" successfully here.

That's now changed to command-A.

OK, I internalized the aquaterm dylib in the gretl bundle, but
forgot about internalizing the AquaTerm app itself. That's now
done (and tested here, with the external AquaTerm framework
and App masked out). Trying to use an external AquaTerm may
produce unpredictable results.
That's now ok. Gnuplot now plays nice with AquaTerm.
Once again the weirdness with Control+F2 not working when Gretl.app is started first
Quitting and restarting then makes Control+F2 access Gretl's menu.
Top of screen menu still not accessible.
There is a Mac OS X version of gedit. That does have its menu at the top of the screen.
But the menu is not accessible with Control+F2 at all.
So it's just useless.
Gretl looks nice in the gtk-quartz version and runs ok.
If the mac integration could be improved that would be really nice.
It's a significant achievement to have come so far.
It would be really nice if the mac integration could be pushed further.
With the keyboard control that I have mentioned in previous posts.
It looks like you have done all that is possible so maybe some advice from gtk-osx people
can shed some light on how to proceed.
