I really liked it when the menu icon highlighted yellow when a task was running, cuz when the animation doesn't run across multiple monitors -- it is an easy way to tell the timer is still running.

    Hi Carter,

    Can you please attach a small screenshot of your menu icon. When it shows this status of not being yellow anymore - but you'd like it to be.
    There are so many different settings, and I would like to see how you configured it.

    Attached are a couple of screenshots. One of the menu bar and the other of my current preference settings. Thanks Niko!

    Are you running Timelime version 1.5.3?
    I think it has always been like this: When the menu bar icon is animated, its color doesn’t change. When animation is turned off, it turns yellow/green when the timer is running.
    Have you tried turning the animation off in preferences?

    Several users have told me they don’t like color in their menu bar, that’s why I’m using as little color as possible...

    OK, I finally got it working. I had to delete/uninstall and reinstall for it to work properly. I just updated from OS X 10.11 to 10.12 Sierra, so it probably just freaked out a bit. Thank you for your help!

    P.S. I did have to turn off the animation for it to turn yellow. Thank you again! Love the app.
