can you try help--> check for updates to get to the latest patch level ? There was an update released this week (not sure when you downloaded yours). If this is still there then this is a bug obviously
The issue still persists after installing the latest patch.
I just downloaded standalone SkinEditor 126.96.36.199 and had the same problem as you.
I managed to get round it thankfully.
As you mentioned, the menu items become visible sometimes when moving the mouse over them. I managed to find the Preferences menu item and opened it. In the Environment section I changed the Look and Feel from Oracle to Mac OS X. When I restarted the editor came up with no errors.
I don't think the Mac OS X look and feel is as nice though so I did some more digging.
I found a file called jdev-Darwin.conf in jdev/bin that contains Mac specific configuration for JDeveloper. In here I noticed the following line:
As the error we were getting was to do with menus I copied the line into skineditor.conf and hey presto it works for the Oracle look and feel. The app menus are on the Apple menu bar rather than the Java app window but I can live with that.
Thank you - your solution worked. Editing "skineditor.conf" and adding the option worked. (I encountered the same problem when trying to install Skin editor (188.8.131.52.0) on my Mac (10.6.8) with the latest Java. )
