Show Icon in

Choose between three options:

Option

Explanation

Dock only

The Flume icon will be displayed in the macOS Dock when running.

Dock and menu bar

The Flume icon will be displayed in the macOS Dock when running, and in the Menu Bar's status item area.

Menu bar only

The Flume icon will be displayed only in the Menu Bar's status item area. If set to "Menu bar only", it is a macOS feature that the Menu Bar will not update when Flume is in focus.**

Clicking on the status bar icon will toggle the windows front-most status, similar to Global show/hide window keyboard shortcut.

** To access Flume's preferences in "Menu bar only" mode, right-click on Flume's icon in the Menu Bar.

Play Sounds

Enable or disable user-interface sounds (such as when refreshing content with the "pull-to-refresh" method, or clicking on buttons).

Enable or disable automatic spell checking corrections while typing captions, messages, and captions.

Show Labels in Touch Bar

Enable or disable labels for buttons that appear in the Touch Bar. Disabling this option will allow more buttons to be visible in the Touch Bar. Learn more.

Keep Window on Top

Enable or disable Flume's windows to float above all other windows on the screen. Large Preview windows will display above all other Flume windows regardless of this option.

Open Web Links in Background

When clicking on web links in comments, captions, messages, or using the Open in browser… menu item, the default web-browser will open the selected link. When this option is enabled, the web-browser opens the link in the background and Flume does not lose focus.

Global Show/Hide Window

Allows you to configure a custom Keyboard Shortcut that can be triggered whenever Flume is open, that will display or hide the Flume main window quickly. If Flume is not currently open, no action will be performed.

When the Show icon in option is set to Menu bar only or Dock and menu bar, clicking on the status bar icon will also toggle the windows front-most status.

Local Cache

Displays the current size of the local database and image cache. This cache is automatically cleared by Flume when it reaches 300MB, when all accounts are logged out, or manually by pressing the Empty Caches button.

Show Flume Pro Item in Menu Bar

Toggles the visibility of the menu item in the macOS Menu Bar.
