Not had any problems with this & I've used every version since V1.0
The output menu has "windowed" & "full screen" options if you need them.
Yes - I used the full screen option to get into full screen mode, at which point the menus no longer appear. If I use the CMD-esc key sequence, I do find that the cursor appears but do not appear to be able to see of the pulldown menu options (including the output menu).
A mystery, I suppose
