I've noticed a strange thing with ActionMenu which can also be seen in the documentation for V9 and V10 on OS X. It seems that when an ActionMenu is grouped with something else in a list a small triangle appears to the right and below:

This is present throughout my docs. However if I change the default appearance to a popup or button the artefact goes away:

Anyone have any ideas about the cause of this?

  • $\begingroup$ @Mr.Wizard interesting. It looks like the "down triangle" on the RHS on Windows gets messed up on Mac. Looks like a bug to me $\endgroup$ – Mike Honeychurch Jan 30 '15 at 0:21
  • $\begingroup$ @MichaelE2 I just retested an am not seeing it for "PopupMenu", only for the default. I am using V9 this morning on OS X 10.10.1 $\endgroup$ – Mike Honeychurch Jan 30 '15 at 0:25
  • $\begingroup$ @MichaelE2 actually the triangle you are seeing under the popup belongs to the default one to the left. For some reason the triangle appears ~5mm to the right of the default action menu and under the baseline. $\endgroup$ – Mike Honeychurch Jan 30 '15 at 0:27

This is a bug in the Mathematica FrontEnd that appears on systems running Mac OS X 10.10. The cause is a change, beginning with Yosemite, in the behavior of the API used to draw the popup arrow. The FrontEnd bug will be fixed in an upcoming release.
