OS X Lion: Issues with Mission Control

  • Type: Other
  • Version Tested: 1.2b3 (Intel)
  • OS Version Affected: Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion)
  • Status: Open


On OS X 10.7 Lion, with Shades running, the desktop thumbnails (Spaces) in Mission Control become blank, instead of showing the applications running in that Space. It would be wonderful if you could fix this, thanks. :)

Update: It only affects the first Space thumbnail.

Since Update to Mac OS Lion i cannot activate Shades with alt+space. I hope, you can fix this!

Since updating to 10.7.1 Shades will not startup- eve when pref. file has been removed.

When you say you removed the prefs file, do you mean the com.charcoaldesign.shades.plist file, or the Sytem Preferences panel?

I removed the com.charcoaldesign.shades.plist file. BUT- I have since found out that 'Airfoil 4.5.6" by Rogue Amoeba, which was updated 2 days ago was causing the problem. It also is causing other 3rd party software failures. I have removed it and all is good. Thanks.
