Menu Bar item

‚ÄčIf the menu bar or system tray icon has been disabled in the Flexi-deck preferences and you wish to re-enable it, run Flexi-deck whilst it is currently running in the background.  This will invoke the Macro Editor and show the Flexi-deck file menu.  Invoke the Preferences dialog and re-enable the menu bar icon.

The menu bar / system tray icon indicates that the Flexi-deck daemon process is running and is also used to invoke the Flexi-deck menu functions as described below:

Flexi-deck can run in Creator mode, whereby the Editors are fully functional, or Player mode, such that the Macro Editor is disabled and the Menu Editor has limited functionality.

This is reflected in the functionality of the Flexi-deck menu options and functions

Flexi-deck log

The Flexi-deck log contains diagnostic information that's useful when investigating bugs or other issues. When seeking support, we may ask you to provide a log, and specifically to use the "Add Marker" button in the log window to indicate when you started reproducing the issue, or when you observed it. You can then save the log to a file using the "Save Log..." button, and email it to Flexi-deck support.
