That’s so frustrating that the entire version 5.9.x is broken! And it’s the second release which we need to miss. The recent working release is 5.7. Does it mean the end of ParaView development and support?
I’m pretty sure that ParaView is working properly for MacOS with 5.9.0 and 5.9.1. Further, if you give us a bit of detail what you are doing, that would help. As I don’t see what you are doing, I tried a few tests myself.
Also, note that although the developers try to kssp backward compatibility with state files, this is not guaranteed. If you are opening a state file created in an earlier version, please remake it from scratch.
MacOS 5.9.1 install from paraview.org. Catalina. Macbook Pro 13 Inch, 2020.
File/ Open/ Examples/ disk_out_ref.exo.
Clip. Paint by Temperature.
Back to disk_out_ref. Stream Tracer. Tube. Paint by Pres. (I then changed the preset).
Try this, and if it is an issue, please post a screenshot. Here is a screencapture and screenshot of what I did:
Also, I can’t save the screenshot while I have enough free space on my drive:

Do you mean ParaView 5.9.1 requires a supercomputer to just save a single 4-symbols text label to a file? I can process really complex ParaView projects in ParaView 5.7 on the laptop. I’m waiting for Mac Pro M1X or M2 to upgrade but ParaView doesn’t work even on Intel machine for now…
