Unexpected App name in menubar

Post by rumplestiltskin » Thu May 12, 2016 12:50 am

I have an app, let's call it "My Big Application v1.02". I set that as the name of the stack, the title of the stack and, in the standalone settings, that's the long version. The short version is "1.02" (no quotes). Everywhere I can provide a name, I use 1.02 at the end.

In LC8, however, the app that is generated displays "My Big Application v1.0" in the menubar. Bug? My Bad? Maybe there's someplace else the filename needs to be changed?

I did show the package contents and the plist shows "1.0" for this key:

<key>CFBundleName</key>

I changed it in the plist with textEdit, saved it and, when I launched the app, the menubar name was now correct.

Comments? Thanks!

Barry
