Meu Control: Brightness Icon highlight

  • Status: Not a Bug


Hi there,

In an older version when one used the "Brightness Icon" for the Menu control then, when making the screen darker the brightness of the actually icon would light up when the mouse moved..

I'm not sure if it has something to do with my having moved to an intel MacBook since the powerbook...

When one makes the screen too dark then one can't find the brightness slider / icon any longer.

It's nothing to do with you machine. Shades now works by adjusting the display gamma instead of drawing an overlay, which has a lot of benefits for compatibility, but it means that I can no longer draw user interface elements at full brightness.
