Read on if you would like to take another step to free yourself from Microsoft.
The problem is that the preference file where you have to change the line doesn't exist until you quit the program. So in order for the program to create the file, you have to fumble through the window's messed up menu to find the Quit menu item. (Do not quit from the menu at the top of the screen; you have to do it from within the window.) Afterwards, you can follow the directions in the bugfix to change a line in the .ganttproject file in your home directory from (shown as two lines for space reasons):
<looknfeel name="Kunststoff" class="com.incors.plaf.kunststoff.KunststoffLookAndFeel"/>
<looknfeel name="Mac OS X" class="apple.laf.AquaLookAndFeel"/>
Alternatively, you can create a new .ganttproject file in your home directory with the following text. This assumes that you are using version 1.9.10, and you put the .jar file in your main Applications directory. (You can then just doubleclick on the .jar file to run the program.)
IMPORTANT NOTE: The xsl-dir and xsl-fo lines above are split for a narrower story display. When entering the code, remove the line break but do not add a space!
