Hi Makarius,

I just tried (both Isabelle/5556ae257df9 -- this time it should be a real changeset number -- and with Isabelle2019) and nothing appears in "General". I tied to grant "Full Disk Access" to "Terminal" but that also didn't help.

I'll try to see if I can find a workaround. I presume it's something silly like some environment variable that's confusing jEdit or some file or nonstandard setting. That would explain why I have problems now with older repository versions, even though these used to work for me a few months ago, and why I'm apparently the only victim.

I could try to upgrade to Catalina as well and see.

Thanks for your help.
