Incorrect task marked as running

Hi there,

This is actually a similar issue to one I posted earlier, but I was told that it got fixed in 1.5.3. I'm running 1.5.3 right now and the issue has unfortunately returned.

The task marked as running in the quick-view bar isn't the same as the one in the dropdown list. And earlier, despite clicking a task in the dropdown list to run it, the quick-view bar didn't reflect that a task was running. Please see attached screenshot.

I updated to 1.5.3 about a week ago and this is the first time it's happened, so possibly not the same cause, just the same symptom? Good luck debugging this one! I'll try and find more trigger conditions :)

    Hi Ash,

    Thank you for reporting this issue again. I’m trying to debug this right now:)

    I have two questions:
    Do you have synchronization enabled in Timelime’s preferences?
    What kind of Mac are you running Timelime on?

    Thanks for your help,

    Hi Niko,

    1) No, I do not have synchronisation enabled.
    2) I'm running Macbook Air with MacOS Sierra, version 10.12.2 (16C67)

    All the best!

    Hi again,

    I think I have found the cause of this issue.

    It happens when you start a timer for a task while the menu bar is not visible.
    The menu bar is not visible when you are currently in a fullscreen app or when you have enabled “Automatically hide and show the menu bar” in macOS System Preferences.

    Do you think this was the cause for the bug you reported.

    Anyway, I am working on a fix for this now.

    Hi Niko,

    That DEFINITELY sounds like it might be the cause. I frequently use
    full-screen apps, and my menu bar is set to auto-hide.

    Ohh, good. That’s easy to fix. I’ll release another update.

    Thanks again,
