Hey @laura, thanks for your reply!
Yeah, I know about bartender. But I don’t really like the idea of hacking the system or install other apps just to do away with unnecessary menu bar items. That’s simply bad design on the part of app developers who tend to put too much emphasis on their own apps. As a result, the user ends up with such problems (sorry to be so frank, I do highly appreciate all your efforts!). So that’s the reason I’m asking here.
You could make it so that users can choose to activate this option in the settings menu? I also don’t think that people won’t be able to find the app again. You simply start the app like any regular app, which brings forth the GUI if the background process is already running, and that’s it. No new paradigm to learn for the end user. No cluttered menu bar. Win-Win.
If you do have plans for the app that require more interaction with the menu bar icon, by all means, simply ignore my comments. But as of now, I don’t think the necessary interactions rectify a menu bar item. So maybe, when you’re reviewing the app again, you might be able to consider my proposal
