    The convert solution format menu is supposed to show a dialog where you can choose a different file format. It seems that this is failing with Visual Studio for Mac 7.6.

    In the IDE log file (Help - Open Log Directory) I can see an exception:

    An unhandled exception has occurred. Terminating Visual Studio? False
    System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object

    Is that what you are seeing?

    No, I didn't seen above log file content.
    I understood like convert project or application for windows and Linux OS i.e. port application from Mac using GTK# forms.
