Uh, does this also affect the MacOs version?
 I’ve planned a session for tonight and don’t want to run in trouble...

Oh my! It’s not a bug, it’s a feature.
Playing around with the options, time and location and found out that the satellites disappear on daylight and return when it’s dark.

This is confusing because someone (like me) could think „Only visible“ means magnitude reachable with naked eye or something like that.

Well, case closed!

I submitted a bug report at KDE-Bugtracker.

SUMMARY
Seems to be a location and time based bug

STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Preferences -> Satellites -> Show Satellites -> Show only visible satellites -> OK
2. Choose a location, e.g. Frankfurt, Germany
3. Pause clock
4. Set time step to 1 hour
5. Advance steps in hour.

OBSERVED RESULT
If there where satellites drawn, they will disappear at some point.
After a few steps more they come back.

EXPECTED RESULT
Satellites shouldn't disappear-

SOFTWARE/OS VERSIONS
macOS: 11.2.3

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Also tested in Windows via Crossover

Thank you for testing.
Can you please change your location to Frankfurt, Germany?

It seems a location based bug. As soon as I change my location to America all satellites are drawn.
Nothing to see here in Europe.

I've tested this with Mac and Windows via Crossover.

I selected all available Satellites in Preferences -> Satellites.
As soon as I select "Only show visible Satellites" there is not a singe satellite on the screen.

I've downloaded the PC Version of KStars 3.5.2 and let it run in Crossover and there is the same behavior.
What I am doing wrong?

De-select "Only visible..."
 



Select "Only visible..."

You're right it is enough to click "ok"- Thank you.
This greyed out button was just a little irritating for me I guess...

Configure -> Satellites -> List of Satellites
Select one or more from the list -> the "Apply" Button stays grayed out.
You can only press "OK" or "Update TLEs"

This issue is still unresolved in version 3.5.2 (MacOS).
After pressing OK (as "apply" is greyed out) all changes are lost.

As you can see, I've just selected Intelsat, but I can't save this due missing apply button.
I could now select/un-select e.g. "Draw satellites as stars" to let the apply button appear and save my settings.
 

Beside of this behavior I can only see Satellites in KStars when I de-select "Show only visible satellites".
