In version 3407 (and before) I have the problem with display.capture to generate the desktop of my MAC to not show the GUI elements and menu roll outs correctly anymore. The display.capture in the Corona Simulator seems to generate some problems on my system which even resulted in some parts of the screen (like menus) to get unreadable OR the mac automatically restarted!

Anybody else experiencing this?

Max?  Did you mean Mac?  You can edit the title line to fix that typo.

 

Re getting assistance .... see my post below.  Follow my directions that and folks can help you.

 

 

PS - What version of OS X are you running and give us the specs of your machine.

Do this.

 

1. Make a tiny demo (main.lua and config.lua ONLY) that:

 

A. Draws a few rectangles on the screen.

 

B. Does a capture. like you are now.

 

 

2. Confirm that crashes your mac.  If not, you've got something else going on.  If so, share the demo in a  zip file here with us by:

 

A. Clicking 'more reply options' below.

 

B.  Then,
