MacOS Mojave broke simulate keystroke (ctrl + arrow) - Questions & Suggestions - Keyboard Maestro Discourse
(Apparently simulated keys don’t work in Mojave if it’s a keyboard shortcut of an existing app and the shortcut include arrows or function keys.)

“Yes, simulated keys that are hot keys of the system or other applications, that use arrows or function keys apparently don’t trigger the hot keys in Mojave.

“I have reported this to Apple (and done all the hard work of providing them with a test application). No idea if they will resolve it, for all I know they think this is a security feature.”

Solved: OS X Mojave 10.14.5 won't log in with 2 Factor - Dropbox Community - 354731
(Apparently some people are having—or have had—issues with Dropbox’s two-factor authentication on Mojove:)
“Brand new iMac Pro, Mojave 10.14.5. Dropbox is the first program I’ve installed.

“When I go to login with the desktop app, it accepts email and password, but when I enter the 2-Factor code, nothing happens. The little progress wheel spins once and goes away. The window stays in place.”

Daring Fireball: CoreAnimation Bug in MacOS 10.14.4
(Perhaps it may be worth waiting till 10.14.5, then?)
“It’s incredibly rare for us to have to do this, but I need to let our Mac customers know that the 10.14.4 version of Mojave which shipped a few weeks ago (on March 25, 2019) has a drawing bug which makes windows with large CoreAnimation layers fail to draw. In particular, OmniOutliner and OmniPlan customers have been telling us that since upgrading to 10.14.4, they will open some documents and end up seeing… nothing. Perhaps some empty borders around the window. (Or if another window is dragged over the space where that window should be drawing, they’ll see a trail of its old pixels.) This is most likely to affect customers who are using older hardware, but it also affects large documents on newer hardware.

“We’re working with Apple to get this resolved as soon as possible, but for now it appears there’s nothing we can do to resolve this on our own.”

AirBuddy
(This requires macOS Mojave, though.)
“AirBuddy brings the same AirPods experience you have on iOS to the Mac. With AirBuddy, you can open up your AirPods case next to your Mac and see the status right away, just like it is on your iPhone or iPad. A simple click and you’re connected and playing your Mac’s audio to AirPods. Oh, it also makes sure the audio input of your Mac is NOT switched to the AirPods so you can get the best possible quality.”

Craig Grannell on Twitter: "Incidentally, the ‘fix’ (if you can call it that) for this issue is to use a plain-coloured light background, or an image with very little contrast/very light colours. Which is patently ridiculous. Apple needs to do better

Michael Tsai - Blog - Reduce Transparency and Reduce Motion in macOS Mojave
“What you’d expect to happen is for macOS to remove the semi-transparent bits. So instead of Finder sidebars or the macOS app switcher showing what’s beneath them, they’d just have a neutral solid background. Nope. Instead, in its infinite wisdom, Apple’s decided those components should instead be coloured by your Desktop background.”

On macOS Mojave’s Dark Mode – 512 Pixels
“The eight Accent colors are really an expansion of the old version of Appearances; these options change the look of things like drop-down menus, checkboxes and more. They are available in both the Light and Dark Appearances, and can really change the feel of macOS.”
