Does anyone know how to get into safe mode (or insert any other boot args) from the opencore bootloader menu screen?
I know I can add boot args when I have already booted into the desktop (using opencore configurator or propertree etc), but how can I add any boot args at the boot menu?
I tried holding shift when booting but nothing happens.
Fyi I am using OC 0.5.9

Same problem here. Is there a way to edit boot-args in interactive mode in the picker?

Enable PollAppleHotKeys in your config under Misc -> Boot. Once it's enabled and you are at the OC boot menu. Press CTRL + X then boot the volume. This should boot into macOS with safe boot. Same for verbose but it's CTRL + V
