Recent items are not being cleared in dock icon context menu

Recommended Posts

In both apps, the recent items are not being cleared from the dock icon's context menu.


1. Drag the app icons into the dock.

2. Start the app(s) and open a couple of images/documents

3. Close the app(s)

4. Open the app(s) again

5. Go to File > Open Recent > Clear Menu

6. Quit the app(s)

7. Right click on the app(s) icon in the dock.

8. The recent documents are still listed.


This is a MAJOR privacy issue since other people can see what documents I have possibly created or worked on. To make it even worse, the file names are still showing up even if I delete the files from the drive.


Clearing recent items under the Apple menu doesn't help. Neither logging out. This does not seem to be an OS related issue, since this seem to work for other applications. ADesigner and APhoto does not seem to remove these items.
