Sikulix hides every program and every window at screenshot

Asked by Ralph G on 2020-09-04

I have just installed Sikuli for the first time ever. I actually installed the Sikulixide which is what I am trying to start with.
I am using an iMac with the latest updates Catalina 10.15.6
When I am in Sikulixide and I click "Take Screenshot" then every window of every program vanishes and I am left with the image of my desktop only.
I have tried changing the Screenshot delay to to 5 seconds etc. in Preferences, quit and restart Sikuli, reboot the Mac, Launch from command/terminal, launch from Finder, change the keyboard shortcut (command/shift/2) keys and try it that way.
If I 4-finger up on the trackpad then Mac shows me that all programs and their Windows exist but clicking on one simply keeps it hidden. I have noticed that if I make a program active (using Finder bar or 4-finger swipe then click) then the "file menu, if that's wha t it's called on a Mac" does change to the appropriate program. But even trying to alter programs from full-screen (remain hidden though) to hidden and back to hide never gets the programs or their windows out of being hidden.
On the bright side i do have lots of lovely snapshots of different parts of my background wallpaper now ha ha.
Any ideas?
I'm totally stumped : (

WOW! You are SO KIND replying to my question within such a short time and at such a late time in the evening Raimund.
You definitely have won a new project code contributor, once I finish transferring over to Java from C# ; )
A HUGE THANK YOU. I spent about 3 hours trying to figure it out so you have made my evening.
