In that case i ask on the developer forum.
@Jee-Bee in your file I can not make Datum and Sketch objects visible. To create a loft sketches must be visible, I think.

I have a very simple file to test Loft applied to Draft. If you want to try it and see if it works in Mac.

I can create the loft on MacOS. I have to select the top face before starting the loft. It is not possible to select the edges as first section.

ok, it works like this.

Now there are two examples where you can select the sketch.
draft-loft2 the top is fixed
Draft-loft3 the top follows the top face of Draft

If you can do this I will say everything works.

I am not sure what this means and I don't see a difference in the lofts of draft-loft2 and draft-loft3, so perhaps it helps if I tell what I have done in both models:

- deleted the existing loft
- make both sketches visible
- selected the lower sketch
- additive loft
- added section upper sketch
-> works ok.

- the same but selected upper sketch first
- added section lower sketch
-> works ok

This is what I wanted to make and the result is fine. Obelisk created with loft.

This shows that Sweep and Loft also work on Mac OS X.
In your file, only Fusion001 is not a valid shape.
