@WilliamKoperwhats Norman, I agree with you, the "AppName" can mean a lot of different things, but for this particular purpose I'm wanting with the name that appears in the menubar or the actual visible name in the Finder.
That is the Bundle name, not the plist entry nor the truncated & fixed name of the executable in Contents/MacOS
And that is only retrievable properly using a declare or a plugin and WILL change if the user happens to rename the app bundle like I mentioned I do
However the two are NOT identical
When I rename the app bundle what shows in the menu bar is still the name as it was set in the Plist not the name shown in the Finder
@WilliamKoperwhats Three things to note: 1. Strange that there is no way of accessing the "Mac App Name" or "Windows App Name" information programmatically,
Dunno if there is a FR for this - there may be
But given what I just wrote above "which name is it you want" is a relevant question as there could be as many as 3 on macOS
@WilliamKoperwhats 2. It sounds like the "Description" field really isn't a "Shared" setting if it doesn't actually apply to macOS apps
Shared may not mean "across every target"
Windows & Linux use it I believe and it is common to them
@WilliamKoperwhats 3. the "Copyright" field (finally renamed from "Long Version" - thank you BTW) of the Mac version of the Xojo 2019r1.1 app appears to have been entered incorrectly. When I did a "Get Info" on the application file, it just says ".1".
I have no idea how Xojo's build process decides what toset that to
Report it as a bug as that does seem on macOS it should say "©Xojo Inc." or something
