Thanks, Simon, for the quick response and action.
4 indicators under the indicator plug-in:
1. Application Indicators
2. Power Management
3. Sound Menu
4. Messaging Menu.
Much better. My observations in the last 1/2 hour:
1. The Audio Menu which was not visible before is now visible.
2. *Still missing*: _Power Management_ indicator.
3. Setting the overall "hide indicators by default" function now
works. The change is visible immediately and Logout-login shows "No
Indicators" on Panel 0.
4. Clearing the "hide indicators by default" function now works. The
change is visible immediately and Logout-login shows the indicators
restored on Panel 0.
5. Setting the "hidden" switch on an individual indicator works. The
change is visible immediately and Logout-login shows the indicator
to be missing as expected on Panel 0.
6. Clearing a "hidden" switch appears to be like a dead action because
no change is immediately visible. *However*, after logout-login,
the reset did actually take even though it was not visible before
logout. Clearing the box should be immediately visible even though
logout-login is needed for the clear to be in effect.
What can I do to assist? Further information needed? More testing?
