Also, the background or certain GUI objects (the toolbar, and the buttons on the mapper, for example) frequently is black as opposed to the normal gray, which can cause some problems interacting with them (as the variables button and the search bar to the right of the command line become entirely invisible), in addition to just not being visually appealing.
Not sure about the redraw time yet, but could you see if the background issues are fixed in uploadfiles.io/771b0? It's Mudlet recompiled with the latest Qt 5.8.

I have several geyser miniconsoles for things like chat capture, etc.

If I switch to a different window (say, Chrome) and then switch back to mudlet, those consoles go black. Sometimes just partially, but usually completely.

Any new activity to a console will return the display to normal. If I backscroll into the main buffer, the miniconsoles will all redraw.
Could you test with could uploadfiles.io/771b0?

So, in that version, the toolbar just doesn't get drawn at all initially, and is left as a white rectangle. Once I force it to redraw by resizing the window, it looks normal, and doesn't seem to have the issue with the previous version. Also, the redraw time is reduced significantly, though it is still longer than what I see with 2.1. Also, it seems to me that this version just has more 'lag' when it comes to interacting with the game, but it could be just my imagination, or maybe my computer is being slow, as it does on occasion.

I've fixed the blank background issue that's present in the above .dmg.

I've also confirmed the problem of the mac toolbar not showing separate windows anymore for Mudlet like it did in 2.1, will look into that.

I'd hate for Mudlet to feel slow and I'm not sure how are we having so many issues with rendering on macOS, surely lots of people would be using Qt apps on it.

Like I said on Discord, that version fixes the geyser consoles

There's an old hanging issue with empty command separator window being treated as "break input into single characters" instead of "I don't want any separator". Should it behave the way it behaves right now? It's not quite intuitive - clearing the field causes a confusing behavior where muck seemingly stops understanding input (and it takes a while to figure that it actually receives "c<newline>o<newline>n<newline>n<newline>..." instead of "connect").

I agree with you, having nothing should clear it. It does not make sense to want your input broken up like that.

Jor'Mox, ecie, mind retesting your macOS UI issues on this version: https://ufile.io/636e61 ?

This is a very R&D version by the way - it's compiled from the latest development branch, not release_30 - exersize caution with your data.
