Preferences menu entry disabled (in german localisation)

Graphical (UI)

On Mac OS X 10.6.4 the menu entry for Preferences is disabled, effectly preventing any customization of the application.

That's a very weird bug. I can't reproduce.
Which version of MuseScore are you using? What sort of Mac?
On Mac, the preferences menu is in MuseScore->Preferences and the shortcut is ⌘ + ,

I just saw preferences are accessible via Edit Menu, though there is a disabled entry in the Musescore menu (which would normally respond to ⌘ + ,). Version is as stated above.

By accident I found this is probably a localisation issue. I had a german UI active and switched now to english. After that the Preferences entry in the Edit menu disappeared and MuseScore -> Preferences was enabled. On a side note: switching from german to english did not switch the Palette (it is still in german) even after i restarted the application.

Might be, hard to say just from quick inspection. Doesn't apply to the unswitched Palette localization.

The palette behavior is a feature actually. You create a custom palette somehow and the result is store in a file with german strings. Remove ~/Library/Application Support/MusE/MuseScore/mscore-palette.xml to have a clean palette at next startup.
