Symbols Sync button is not showing On/Off state.


Recommended Posts

The new beta 2.4.0 [2279] will now not show if a Symbol is synced or not in both light or dark User Interface on Mac OS 12.7.3. To trigger this I notice that if I switch from Dark to light and back again the highlighting will not show in the Dark Interface as well as the Light Interface. But the button works, I am just having to guess.
It was bad enough that the light interface was broken but now with both Interface colours being broken makes this syncing effectively useless. Please fix this.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

Good catch...

It's not specific to the 2.4.0 2279 Beta, I see the same behaviour in the 2.3.1 Retail version, both require a reboot for the Sync button active state to become visible again...

This has been previously reported and logged as a bug and I'm not aware that we've seen a fix for it as yet...

Hi Old Bruce,
Thanks for letting us know. As Hangman has mentioned this is something we're aware of and have logged, and as you say only happens if you switch UI. Restarting the app will fix the button however.

As near as I can tell the new version for retail (2.4.0) has fixed this. Many thanks people.

Not for me.
To test it, I just switched from dark to light, and I see no Sync state whatsoever:

Same when switching back. It only gets fixed via app relaunch.

And now, also for me there is no indication. Even in the Dark mode.

I believe the expression I am looking for is [expletive deleted].

I believe it's a Mac only bug so doesn't affect Windows...
