Aside, while looking at bug this bug it occurred to me, why does LO support macOS 10.10? <> 

macOS 10.10 was released almost six years ago, and haven’t had security updates since July 2017

The latest supported OS by Apple is 10.13 that was released three years ago.
That OS supports Macs since 2010, so ten year old hardware (in fact the same hardware support as 10.12)

Apple generally support the last three releases. This coming fall that means 10.14 is the last supported OS with hardware from 2012

Given that macOS development resources are scarce it would make sense to prioritize the OSes that Apple support themselves?

If you don’t care about security fixes, you probably don’t care if you have a slightly older version of LO either

At least bumping to 10.13 should be safe - you can argue whether to bump it to 10.14 this fall or not
(6.3 was the version that bumped support to 10.10)
