    I have tried deleting and re-downloading unity, and nothing has worked. it can open projects but the editor seems corrupted and nothing seems to fix this issue

    If you are running MacOSX Catalina or higher, Unity5 is not going to work because it has components that are not 64bit.

    Unfortunately this is not going to change.

    To run Unity5 on these OSes, it is necessary to create and host a virtual machine that runs an older version of the OS.

    Or... just upgrade to an LTS version of Unity2017 or Unity2018... there are guides to making the transition and as long as you don't go too much further than that, it's not too intrusive.

    WARNING: Upgrading is a one-way street. Always place your project under source control before upgrading.

    Apple keeps making significant application breaking changes with each major OS release. Because of this, on a Mac you need to keep to a release of Unity which is still under active support, or keep to an OS version which is from the same time period as the Unity version you are using. (or VM as mentioned above)

    If it isn't the 64 bit only issue, it was the file system conversion issue before that, etc, etc. I don't know why Apple customers tolerate this abuse.
