Let's try this again....

 

I'm looking for anyone else having this problems to see if they have found a work around.

 

I have been having several intermittent problems with Aperture 3.5 in full screen mode with Mavericks. Most of the time, it's ok. But now and then, it seems to get stuck on something. When I swipe to go back to another application, it goes to my widget's panel, not the desktop. Swiping up to get mission control, I see the desktop and go to it. That really messes aperture up. You go back into it and its a black screen. I try to get out by pressing F and sometimes it works, sometimes not. When it DOES work, I will select an image in the browsers and strangely enough, the screen goes black and it goes back into full screen mode. Kind of a mess.

 

Additionally, the entire app seems to drag. Selecting an image make take 3-5 seconds for it to switch from the one it is on to the one I selected. And I'm using a fully loaded top processor speed/max memory 27" iMac from last year.

 

Has anyone else experienced this and found a work around?

    Update: I can not get out of full screen mode. When it is and a bug occurs like above, I hit hit F to take it out of full screen mode. The menu bar at the top disappears when it leaves full screen move and won't come back. If I selectany thing on the Aperture application, (like a project folder), the entire screen goes dark again and jumps back into full screen mode where the entire thing is unresponsive. I have to kill it off with Force Quict and start again, although it always happens a few minutes later.

     

    Is this a mission control/spaces issue? Or just something I need to stay out of full screen mode and wait for a bug fit fix?

    There is  a new setting in Mission Controll Displays have seperate spaces. It is on by default. You can try turning it off and see if it makes any difference.

     

    There have been other reports for other apps that multi-display is still not there yet.

     

    Post back if you try it.

    Thanks, both.

     

    I did try it and it somewhat changes the problem, but it is still there. The full screen system seems to get messed up and when it does, it can't seem to get out of it totally. When it starts singing daisy in full screen mode and you get it to exit full screen mode, the top menu disappears and selecting anything (even empty gray space) within the app sends it back into full screen mode, but once here, nothing responds to user action (can't select images from the browser, the HUD is unresponsive, etc). A few other quirks I can't nail down with any consistency.

     

    The only way I have found to avoid it is to completely exit the application, reboot, restart it and never go into full screen mode. It's still a little more sluggish that it should be, but at least I can do my work and get things to clients. Entering full screen mode just seems to be too buggy for practical purposes so far.

    I'm not seeing what you are reporting. Have you tried deleting your Aperture.plist and then restarting? This should set some UI to the default state.

    I'll give it a try. The problem does not happen every time and doesn't start the moment you go into Full Screen mode. I was in it for about 45 minutes the last time before it hit. It's very intermittent which makes it notoriously hard to reproduce and diagnose. But let me give the reset a try by dumping the plist. Will let you know what I find.
