    Hello! I'm testing Parallels before I buy and I've encountered a big problem. After installing Parallel Tools in the VM (Ventura) when the VM window exceeds a certain size the text on the Menu Bar disappears. All menu options are still present, but they cannot be seen.

    Hardware: 2020 Intel iMac
    Host OS: Ventura 13.5.1
    Guest OS: Ventura 13.5.1
    Parallel Version: Parallels Desktop 18
    Technical data report number: 433635184
