Anyone any experience with Livecode under Ventura?

FYI I NEVER am going to consolidate all my documents in iCloud. That's like hanging a copy of all my keys in the community center that's open 24 hours a day to everyone. One day someone is going to lock the doors...

I upgraded to Ventura over a week ago. No problems so far with one
exception: the OS suggested that I consolidate everything onto iCloud for
universal access and backups. I did so. That resulted in oddities like
cmd-shift-D now opening iCloud/Desktop instead of something in my home
directory. Or more accurately, there *is* a "Desktop" folder in my home
directory that appears not to be an alias, but is invisible?

Anyway, doing this caused the same thing to happen for the Documents
folder. LiveCode apparently can't find the invisible folder, so e.g. it
defaulted back to the copy of Navigator included with LiveCode -- which is
ancient, no one should use it -- instead of the copy in ~/Documents/My

So far, to fix it I hit cmd-shift-period in the Finder. That shows
invisible files. I'm sure there's a way to un-invisible a folder, and
hopefully that will fix the issue without causing any issues with what
Ventura is trying to do with iCloud.
