... until december 22nd, after switching to french, you need to check if the menu entry is marked as suppressed, before starting scribus...
... in the meantime you can try and see if cmd-, opens the preferences...
if you want your preferences back, you can also remove the preferences file. if you want to go this way, i can look for the instructions for mac... i don't know them by heart...
In fact, in english there isn't any submenu like in french (with Annotation PDF, Signet PDF...). When you choose French for the first time, and don't close Scribus, menus are in French and there is no submenus to the line Preferences... but nothing happens. When you close and open Scribus, the submenus appear. Shortcut to open Preferences isn't working.
We wanted to use Scribus with french children on macOS Catalina, so it would be better to have a french version.
PS Why "until december 22nd " ?
the 22nd december was a pun on the ongoing strike in france... sorry.
i've tried to see in the code if i see a reason why the menu is wrongly wired in french, but i could not find any.
since i don't have a mac computer at hand, i cannot test it.
on linux i have a "normal" préférences dialog
that "Scribus" menu is a mac specific thing, so there might be an issue that is only visible on a mac...
can you try to download the latest 1.5.6svn snapshot and see if you have the issue there too?
I have made several tests with 1.5.6 svn, same bug.
But i have also try some other languages :
- no problem with hungarian, deutsch, portuguese, swedish
- problem with french, spanish, catalan, italian
In fact, when you choose one of the language of the second group, Scribus freezes and you have to do a force-quit. Sometimes, there is this window which appears. I have also joined the crashlog.
So there's something in common with these languages...

||in version 220.127.116.11, 1.5.7 svn (r24369) the bug with Preferences is still present. I have tested on macOS BigSur in French. In this case, i don't have access to Preferences. I don't have the bug if i choose to launch Scibus in english.|
