Ok, so the problem still persists after deleting that preference file. any ideas what to try next?

 

Its quite annoying because i'll be in the middle of working, go to access the edit menu, and its gone, so i have to restart logic.

Are you running any 3rd-party apps or utilities in the background like Keyboard Maestro or anything that might interfere with the menu bar?

Thanks guys. No 3rd party apps, im running ableton live in rewire mode. it happens in multiple different projects.

I’m using some 3rd party plugins of course but that should be ok.

 

Can’t quite put my finger on it as it seems to be quite random.

Once it’s gone though, a restart of logic is the only way to get it back.

I've had this pop up once or twice, but hasn't happened for many months now. For me, restarting computer worked.

 

When I've exhausted other ideas. deleting logic plist. I 'restore' OSX using Utilities Bootup. This will reload a copy of OSX from Apple onto your computer.. You might loose your custom keyboard shortcuts. But everything else remains intact. mail contacts etc.

Sadly that takes too much time and messing around, because this problem happens randomly, in random projects. So i could try a new user 10 times, and it would be fine.

 

The problem doesn't happen all the time.

 

Ive tried deleting the prefs file.

The reason I suggested that is there could be a multitude of variables contributing to the problem and making a new user significantly reduces them. You might try working on a project from a new user for a while. Your plugins should be universally installed.

Sorry but the problem still persists even if no plugin window is open.

On your original screenshot apparently the last action was a plug-in change so my guess is a plug-in window is open?

 

Next time you get a similar issue but without a plug-in window open, can you take a new screenshot and post it here? And when this happens, can't you click the main window and its Tracks area to make it active and get your normal Edit menu back?

 

Basically it sounds like you're expecting to see the Tracks area Edit menu, however some other area is active. For example if the Loops browser is active then you'll get a near empty Edit menu like on your screenshot...

And what if you click the Tracks area local Edit menu, does it list all options? When the Tracks area is active, both Edit menu should list the same options:
