PM Icon 4.6.4 Mac
« on: May 26, 2010, 06:39:43 AM »
Have just downloaded latest version for Mac 4.6.4 and one teeny tiny thing annoys me.

I think you must have used a smaller icon for this version so when I Control-Tab to scroll through my open applications the PM icon is fuzzy, which affronts my sad, ordered brain. Just thought I'd mention it.

Plus (off-topic), still desperate for a B+W preview option

Best

We haven't changed the icon in years.  Are you saying that if you run an older version of Photo Mechanic (like 4.6.3) it doesn't look the same as what you're seeing in version 4.6.4?

Haven't still got old version but don't remember it being that bad

Seems fine when I look at PM in the Applications folder (and when I enlarge the icon really big), just bad when doing the control-tab thing

Herewith a shot taken on my iPhone (can't do screenshot as already using command) but actually looks worse in real life than on photo

OK, I'm not sure there is anything we can do.  The OS is choosing the icon representation.  On my system the 4.6.4 version looks just like the rest of the icons when using Command-Tab.

My guess is that somewhere in the OS the icon is cached incorrectly.… I remember having a similar situation a long time ago (probably with another application), I think it just went away after a reboot/log-out/log-in.

Have you already rebooted? Is the icon still fuzzy?

Well done Hayo Baan ...a reboot cured it

Many thanks !
