I am trying to use ParaView 5.8.1 on macOS Big Sur 11.2.1, but I am unable to open any data files. When I click File > Open or the corresponding icon in the ParaView GUI, nothing opens and my cursor indicates something is loading. It seems like it loads indefinitely, and I have to force quit ParaView.
When I had macOS Catalina, the Finder window would open but be completely empty. I think ParaView did not know where to look for my documents and files, but I never resolved it and instead used ParaView on a Windows machine via remote login.
Could someone help me resolve these issues?
