Mac Mail Bug

Today I found a bug in Apple's Mail program for Mac.

Select an email. Flag it with the yellow flag. Then give it an orange flag to change the flag color. Then click another email to unselect it.

The flag will display with a green color for about half a second. It fixes itself quickly.

I wonder if it's somehow using two colors at once and they mix to get green, or what. And I wonder why it fixes itself after that amount of time. Seems pretty strange. Software is hard!

Tell apple to correct it

You are an app developer right ? They must be close to you.

Apple will listen to your bug reports just as much as mine. (at least if you write them equally well. which i guess you won't. where did you get the idea that spaces go before question marks and paragraphs shouldn't have a blank line between them?)

i asked a question. you didn't answer it. you didn't even try to. i feel so ignored.

i don't get why people do this. you ask them stuff like "why did you do X?" and they will just do it differently and never tell you why.

Sorry about that. That's how most of us behave.

If you point out a mistake and ask them about it they immediately change it and never tell you why.

you could still answer the question.

also you could try quoting all the quotes.

I am bad at grammar. It is my habit to add a space before a "?".
