Shades Bug Report

LCD turns dark when using keyboard brightness shortcuts

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


Two displays: color LCD and G246HL.
Hot keys mapped as follows: Brighter = None F4; Darker = None F3; both are on
Color LCD min brightness 100%
G246HL min brightness 0%
Hit either F4 or F3
LCD screen turns completely black
I then hit Stop in Shades preferences pane, it waits and tells me that Shades is not responsive and I have to Force Quit

(As you can see, what I am trying to do is set up a hot key to adjust the brightness on my external display only; however, the current functionality with the color LCD going completely black with either Brighter or Darker hot key is clearly a bug.)

Thank you!
