I was trying to use Paraview for visualization of a simple mesh data with 16 HEX8 elements and has 50 data set with nodal values and 5 set with cell values. It loads perfectly and also I can visualize the data set without any problem with ‘Surface’ turned on. But if I turn on the ‘Surface with Mesh’ then there is weird graphics issue that pops up. And if I select ‘Hover cells on’ to investigate the data of a particular cell, it crashes immediately. I have tried with some other mesh but same issue.

Attached is the crash report from Mac.

This looks like a known issue on some Macs. See "Surface With Edges" rendering goes wild when viewing multidimensional meshes and https://gitlab.kitware.com/paraview/paraview/-/issues/20206. I get it sometimes on my Mac, too.
The weird graphics are well reported. I haven’t heard about the crash, but I was able to replicate that on my Mac as well. I only got the crash if I was in
Surface with Mesh mode. If I put it back in
Surface mode, I did not see an issue. I expect the two issues are related.
Attached is the exodus file.

Thanks for the information.
The work around mentioned in those links will be enough for me for the time being.
