Bartender 3.1.23

Bartender lets you organize your menu-bar apps by hiding them, rearranging them, or moving them to Bartender’s Bar. You can display the full menu bar, set options to have menu-bar items show in the menu bar when they have updated, or have them always visible in Bartender’s Bar.

  • Lets you tidy your menu-bar apps how you want.
  • See your menu-bar apps when you want.
  • Hide the apps you need to run, but do not need to see.
  • Have the clean looking menu bar you want.
  • Rearrange your menu-bar items as you wish.

What’s New

Version 3.1.23:

Bug Fixes:
Menu bar item would not hide if its position was the default
  • If a menu bar items position had not been changed by the user, and was still the default Bartender wouldn't hide it, this has been fixed.
Menu item order being lost by macOS
  • For some users, macOS would occasionally lose the order of their menu items. In this release Bartender has extra workarounds to prevent this.
Gap left on inactive menu bar
  • On macOS Catalina if the user hid the Bartender menu item a gap would be left on the inactive menu bar of a multi screen setup. This has now been fixed.
Fix for Bartender menu not showing on secondary screen
  • A bug in macOS Catalina would prevent Bartenders menu showing when the user has 2 screens setup with one above the other. Bartender now works around this bug to display the menus on all screens.
Fix for order of items in Bartender Preferences
  • Apps starting with a lowercased name would appear after all uppercased names in Bartender Preferences, this has been fixed.
Fix for show Full menu bar requiring 3 activations
  • After changing space, Bartender would require activating full menu bar 3 times before working this has been fixed.
Fix for Permissions Success window showing when starting Bartender
  • For some users when starting Bartender at login, the permissions success window would show. this should now be fixed.
Crash fix
  • We receive occasional crash reports of a crash we have not seen here, we believe this build fixes the crash.
Multipass app not controllable
  • Multipass has an uncommon app setup, which Bartender didn't handle. Bartender will now handle apps like this correctly.
Apple Text input menu item not named correctly in Preferences
  • With macOS 10.15.4 apple changed the way the Text Input menu item works. As such Bartender did not know to treat it as a special Apple item and name it as such in Bartender preferences. This has now been fixed.

    Folks, I need help with 3.1.7. Worked till today (am on Catalina). Today I mentioned some problems (didn´t show the hidden bar). So I quit and restarted the app. I was asked to give the permissions in settings again. Usually I had to to click the requested permissions (which are already given) twice (off-on) to give the permission again. But this didn´t work …obviously a Mac problem because the blue/marked box stayed blue/marked. And since then I cannot open Bartender at all. It does absolutely nothing. Restoring an older version with TimeMachine does not help. A complete deinstallation by using CleanMyMac and the installation of the official app helps. No it works …but it´s the trial version.

    Any idea?
