Shades Bug Report

Connecting an external monitor

  • Type: Incorrect Functionality
  • Version Tested: 1.2 (Intel)
  • OS Version Affected: Mac OS X 10.9
  • Status: Open



I'm running OS X Yosemite (10.10.3) and Shades never works when I connect an external monitor, until I go into the System Preferences, stop it, and then start it again.

I'm not sure that it's actually working at all on my MacBook monitor either upon startup, because I never use the brightness control on the MacBook monitor because I have the brightness keys for that.

I've set a Hot Key to start and stop Shades, but that also doesn't work until I open Shades in System Preferences and then stop it and start it.

Shades does show as running on startup.

Also, it always crashes when I disconnect the monitor.

The monitor is external, connected using HDMI.
