Two shades

I have two shades on my computer and I can not delete them...
How can I get rid of them so I can start over?

Open the Activity Monitor application and you can use it to force quit any running Shades instances. Then go to System Preferences, click on the Accounts icon and remove Shades from your login items.

Now when you click Start in the Shades preferences panel it should launch the latest version only. If it launches 1.2b2 instead, click Stop, then remove the Shades preference pane and reinstall 1.2b3.

Same problem!

I actually just had the same thing. Had two shades icons at one, and my screen was flashing every few seconds. I restarted, and the older one seems to be gone now. I can't find anything about v1.2b2 anymore so I guess this has fixed itself?

Hopefully it'll not flash again.

By the way, shades isn;t in my startup items but does start start up, how do I control that then?

Shades automatically adds itself to startup items when you start it from the Shades preferences panel, and removes itslef when you stop it from the preferences panel.

That way if it's running when you shut down it will run when you start up, but if you stop it explicitly it won't automatically launch.
