Hey John,

Sorry to resurrect this thread I decided to give Dropzone another try and I'm still getting this behavior.

Interestingly, ⌘+, does bring up Dropzone and in fact, doing that makes Dropzone's menu bar icon and circles work again. I guess it's not a crash then.

That's a nice workaround, way better than using Kill Switch and Continu but is there a more permanent fix?

I do have gfxCardStatus installed and running.


- OS X 10.8.2, Dropzone 2.5.
- Only default destinations and settings (for testing) except moving circles to the left (IIRC default was on the right?).
- Tons of other apps running, menubar and otherwise, including Bartender. Dropzone is on the primary menubar though.

I've seen this same thing happen too, I get it a couple of times a week.

John, I'll get you that info next time it happens.

I"m not using any GPU related utilities but i do have Parallels running, I imagine that could be doing strange things with the GPU.

This is something I've been using for year in PathFinder and then more recently Yoink. Yoink does the job but it doesn't work by dragging a file onto the App icon so it doesn't work with my Dropzone workflow.

What does work is Fresh. Fresh does this and a few other things that are really handy and works superbly with Dropzone. It does add an extra step or two compared to Yoink or PathFinder though.
