LW Right Click Menu on Mac

Right clicking, CMD+ Left clicking, CNTRL clicking, no matter what kind of click I do in LW (version doesn't matter it's the same in all) on Mac I only get this menu.
Is there a way to add to this menu? Like all the items that show up in F10?

Try resetting your LW configs, or checking whether you have "sticky keys" and/or "mouse keys" enabled.

I've never used either of those keys prefs. But have always had this problem with LW far as I can remember.
Are you on a Mac using LW?
Do you have full access to those sub menus?
I can try to reset my prefs, but I hate to mess up all my custom tabs.

I just confirmed again, and they do work, here using CTRL+SHIFT+[LMB|MMB|RMB] in LW2019.1.5 on OSX 10.13.6.

I seem to recall a conflict with OS-defined keyboard shortcut, but I keep ShortStop active while in LW and that lets me override the OS-defined shortcuts.

Oh my gosh! They do work. But I have to hold down Shift+Control+Option+click. Perhaps it's my Logitech mouse? I have had Logitech mouses for years. My pen works with Shift+Control.
These popups are for LW only, they aren't supposed to work with Modeler menus are they?

https://docs.lightwave3d.com/lw2019/user-interface-conventions (search on page for "Context Pop-up Menus").

Also try search widget at top of page to find 'flat menu'.

Good to learn about ShortStop, thanks. Apple does some annoying things. I'm using USB Overdrive for the same reason. It allows me to use devices that are not even supported anymore.
