Hey there,

First of all, GREAT app. I didn't think I'd find anything that I could use to replace Grindstone when I moved from Windows, but yours definitely is the best I've found yet :)

I have one issue where if my MacBook Air (2014) is coming out of sleep/standby, I can't left-click on the quick-access window in the top bar to open my list of recent tasks. I can right-click it to get another type of list of recent tasks (the one with the Quit Timelime option), but left-clicking does nothing.

I usually solve this by quitting timelime and restarting it.

Running Timelime 1.2.4 on Yosemite 10.10.1

    Hi Ash,

    Thank you very much for your kind words! It makes me happy that you like my app!

    Regarding your problem: That's strange, you are the first user to report this.
    Since I'm unable to reproduce this problem , I have a few questions:

    • Does this happen every time after waking up your MacBook Air, or just sometimes/under certain conditions?

    • Are you using several spaces/fullscreen apps? Could you test if this happens as well when there is just one space and no fullscreen apps (use Mission Control to check).

    • Do you get a spinning beach ball when the panel doesn't open after left click?

    • Does the panel open when you are using a hotkey to open it? You can define a hotkey in Timelime's preferences.

    • Please check if the panel is hiding behind other windows.

    That's it for now:-) Thanks a bunch for porting this!
