After an exhaustive process of trial and elimination, I'm fairly certain MenuEverywhere is the cause of my dominant grief under 10.9 - I kept getting major and frequent system slow downs involving a process called com.apple.iconServicesMonitor and the only way to get my MacBook Pro back to normal was to kill that process. That process is supposed to pop up every now and then, do its thing and then vanish, but it seems MenuEverywhere keeps repeatedly forcing it into the open once it appears on its own. MenuEverywhere has problems anyway, it hasn't been updated in a year and it's likely abandonware at this point.

MenuEverywhere is most definitely *NOT Abandonware*. We are still actively developing it and have delayed the release of a new version to iron out bugs related to Mavericks. That beign said, we've had scant reports of bugs from Mavericks users (and we use it ourselves on Mavericks). If you do experience problems, please email support@binarybakery.com describing the steps to replicate the bug.

Thanks and happy Thanksgiving!

It appears that the license from 1.x works with 2.0. So you can update without worry.
Developer may need to confirm this. I did not see one way or another on the website.

I just experienced a veeeery slow and fairly unresponsive Mac.. went to Activity Monitor.. MenuEverywhere was eating away 4GB or my RAM.. Not sure how that happened..as I've been using it for quite some time and had never run into this. My Mac has been on for two days (I tend to reboot every morning) and I have worked with all sorts of software since yesterday.. launching, quitting etc.. Not sure if one gave ME a hardship.. in any case, quit ME and got my RAM back :-) Before checking Activity Monitor I thought Adobe was eating away at my RAM and it ended up being this..

Hi there,

Thank you for your feedback.

MenuEverywhere is Lion compatible and each release is tested on multi monitor Snow Leopard and Lion systems to ensure smooth behavior.

For the stutter and redraw issue, I'll apprdciate it if you contact me at support@binarybakery.com to investigate and resolve. It may very well be an issue related to a specific setup.

Thank you

What a bummer that it won't work on PPC. Yes, I'm afraid I do still expect my G5 to be catered for.

This is a MUST HAVE mac App. It saves so much TIME and EFFORT. Apple should have thought of it. It is an unexpected jewel, I'd know I needed it, now that I have it, I can't do without it! It just works, I just does what I need it to do, and it is a steal compared to the labor and hassle it saves. WELL DONE!

On my MacBook Pro (2007) running 10.6.8 MenuEverywhere acts as though it has a big memory leak. When its first launched it is using a reasonable 28 MB of Real Memory and 300 MB of Virtual memory. After a few hours of never being called its Real Memory usage goes up to nearly 150 MB. I've seen it as high as 300 MB in previous versions. I've reported this to the developer, but no response. I've stopped using it.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for your comment. With regards to virtual memory, MenuEverywhere is a garbage collection-enabled app. The level of virtual memory reported (in the hundreds) is normal for a garbage collected app (automatic memory allocation/deallocation). Your actual memory usage is under Real Memory.

For more information, see this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2178808/why-is-my-cocoa-app-using-so-much-virtual-memory

With regards to the Real Memory usage, with recent (post 1.9 releases) it should not exceed more than 170-180mb and that's after using it with several apps over several hours. Part of this is a cache that's built up to accomodate faster operation. This cache is automatically cleared up after a set level. On average, memory usage is around 50-70mb.

Frankns had trouble on 01 Oct 2011
After the upgrade Lion. it looks like I have an odd issue with ME:

I'll be replying to a message in Mail or moving a window in finder ... and suddenly the window disappears. Sometimes I find it down at the bottom left of the screen, with only the title bar showing. Other times, it will "walk" to the bottom of the screen on its own ... a "stutter step at a time," while I try in vain to stop it.

In Mail, this tends to happen if I start typing in the reply before the Genie has openened the message all the way. In the Finder, it seems to happen if I move a window too quickly to the edge of a screen or across to my second monitor."

The problem stops as soon as I turn off Menu Everywhere. I've written BB but no response so far.

Many thanks for the report. Apologies for not seeing your email of 30 September.

To help me debug, please provide me with:

your plist file located at ~/Library/Preferences/com.binarybakery.MenuEverywhere.plist

and a screenshot of your monitor/display arrangement.

Thanks!

How come when I use the menu in an app (like Chrome) and say "check for updates" it doesn't do anything? I have to go into applications and run the app (even though it's already running) before it'll actually check.

Hi FHALL,

As mentioned in my reply to your comment below, please email me your setup info so I can replicate the issue, if any. I have tested the update mechanism (standard Sparkle framework) on several setups and it works fine. There's only so much I can do at this point with no info on your setup. Thanks.

Really loving this little app. But the latest update that removed the misplaced menubar repeatedly crashed my Finder and drastically slowed the startup on my machine. Using 10.6.4 on a 3 Ghz iMac. So I've disabled it but am eager to get it back up and running. Thanks.

Hi Willow,

Please get in touch with me directly at the support address in order for me to obtain information that will allow me to help prevent the crash you're experiencing. On a code level, there are not that many significant changes from the last couple of releases, so I would guess it may be a conflict with some other app.

Thanks,
Hisham
