Bugs and fixes

It's not a bug - just a feature.

If, after you press Start Mirroring, you encounter the spinning wheel of death and the app never starts sharing the screen, please follow the underneath steps to fix the problem:

Open the System Preferences menu from the Apple symbol in the upper-left corner. In the window that pops up select the Security & Privacy menu. Click on the Privacy tab and find the Screen Recording option on the side. Either check, or remove and check back, the tick next to Clevershare. 

 

Reopen the Clevershare app and reconnect - now everything should be back to normal.

 

Please note that the app does not record your screen, it needs the function to clone and send the image to the Interactive Display.

If the sound is still not going through, Quit Clevershare one more time, and open the System Preferences menu from the Apple symbol in the upper-left corner. In the window that pops up select the Security & Privacy menu. Click on the Privacy tab and find the Microphone option on the side. Remove and check back the tick next to Clevershare. You may have to unlock this menu by clicking on the lock in the lower-left corner. If asked, use the password that you use to log in to your Mac.

 

Reopen the Clevershare app and reconnect - the sound should be back to its 340 m/s normal behavior.

Chrome Problems and Fixes

How to Clear Cache, Restart, Update

Lately, Chrome started to misbehave – not loading pages, failing to sign in, bad rendering, etc.

We found easy fixes for all the situations.

First things first – if you have a big Update button in the upper right corner, click on it and select ‘Relaunch to update Chrome.’ Do not worry; Chrome will reopen all the tabs that you have active.

The update usually fixes all the known problems because it restarts Chrome. We also discovered that Creative Cloud (Acrobat, Photoshop, etc.) fails to log in, and it’s not letting you use the installed Adobe apps until you update.

If you are connected to the internet but all the new pages are blank; usually, the fix that works is restarting Chrome (do not worry, there’s an easy way to reopen all your tabs.)

Right-click (click with two fingers) the Chrome icon in the Dock and select Quit. Then, reopen it.

If your tabs do not reopen – click the 3 vertical dots from the upper-right corner, hover over History, then the numbered tabs, in this example 4 Tabs, and click on Restore window.
