Currently Libreoffice uses its own drop down menus, which are small in diameter, and sometimes it is really hard to find stuff in it (especially in crowded menus like Calc currency select).
Instead LO could use native OS X drop down menus, which looks aesthetically more pleasing, and easy to use because of the expansion capabilities.
Marking "NEW" as it's a valid enhancement request.

You mean the menu one gets in Calc through Format>Cells..., then select "Currency" in the "Category" column, then clicking on the "$ Default" button, right? I am sure it is not native, right, few things in LibreOffice are, but I don't find it especially crowded? See this screenshot from LO 184.108.40.206.

It is not crowded, but when I opened this bug, they were all very small in diameter, like limited to 6-7 entries like it currently is in AOO, now they have more space to show menu entries, but still not native.
Well, surely not a loss of functionality, but merely an aesthetic enhancement request. Also native menus allow to show more entries definitely.
Sure, but "going native" is a bigger thing, why just drop-down menus, we should be using native everything;)
I wonder, changing OS X dialog boxes from .ui to .xib would achieve this?
Sure. Plus all the related code changes of course;)

I am already trying to get familiar with xCode, I'd love to assist in converting the dialogs, if needed in the future.
Any "conversion" of dialogs from .ui to something directly usable by a system API on some platform should surely be done programmatically, not manually in an IDE.
