Will not align according to setting in preferences

  • Type: Incorrect Functionality
  • Version Tested: 1.1a8 (Universal)
  • OS Version Affected: Mac OS X 10.4 PPC
  • Status: Fixed in version 1.1a10



Great app but the latest version will not align left by changing the preferences - it sticks stubbornly to the right.

As of version 1.1a10, the align left/right option now immediately updates the icon positions.


The align option is just a default setting in version 1.1 - to move the menu, command-drag the icon to the left or right of the menu bar.

Fixed - thanks.

The Preference for location (Left, Right) in the menu bar doesn't work. I set it for left, it displaces everything else and only shows at the right hand end of the Menu Bar

See explanation above

I love your calendar, but though i have it set to remain in the left position, it stays on the right.

Thanks for the COMMAND-Drag, it resolved my issue!

When I select left Menu alignment from the miscellaneous preferences in the alpha builds, nothing happens. In normal builds the magical menu icon moves to the left but in the alpha builds the menu stays on the right. I am not running any other menu programs apart from the system ones like volume, time and bluetooth. Again, this bug only happens with the alpha builds.

Many thanks, did not see this original bug report. Sorry ;)

With both PPC versions 1.09r4 and 1.1a9, the menu bar position always opens at the right even though left is selected in the preferences. In the prefs, if I click right then left, MagiCal correctly moves to the left, but reopens at the right on the next bootup.

I can move the clock Icon by command-dragging, but how do I get the time and date text to move to the left also?

Correction - I can command-drag everything, but how do I get the text and clock icon to move to the left? It used to stick in v1.0.9r4 but now everything stubbornly stays to the right and the "left/right" in the miscellaneous preferences section does nothing.

Posted by Kevin at 08:16am on 19 Jun 2007

If you command-drag the icon to the left of all the other icons it will stick there.

Since it was evident that the intended behaviour was unintuitive, I've modified the way that this option works, and I hope you will all now find it works in accordance with your expectations.
