Solving the issue of using screen menu bar on Mac OS X

If you have force quit IDEA or occur unexpected error and quit IDEA, the screen menu bar will invalid after JOptionalPane appearing, like using Setting/Plugin/Update.
The way to solve this issue is to delete ~/Library/Caches/IntelliJ IDEA/log.
After doing this, screen menu bar will work very well.

For how long?

You should also post this to the tracker to help JB fix issues with the menu
bar and enable it by default.

Now that sounds very interesting! I wonder how log file is related to a system menu operation?

I have no idea why just deleting log file can make it work.
This is just my experience.
At first time, I just delete all cache of IDEA, and the screen menu bar work again.
The next time, I just try to delete the subfolder, and only deleting log folder can make it work again.
You can try to force quit idea, and launch Idea.
After Using Settings/Plugin/Update, the screen menu bar will be no responsible.
Then, just delete ~/Library/Caches/IntelliJ IDEA/log, and the screen menu bar will work again.

This will not work out every time.
I have no idea why and when it works out.
Maybe some evens will cause screen menu bar to be useless, and some actions will make it useful.
This is very odd.
