Your installer is wildly out of date. Updating by downloading the latest 0.15.9 from the website might help. Try that first. I tested on two Macs and don’t see that problem.

I’m moving this to Help until it can be demonstrated that this happens in the updated installer. And ideally also test it in the Sandbox vault, or with community plugins disabled, as a test.

Thanks. Updating the installer fixed the issue!
