22. Fixed: Missing director images were messing up Theater View movie file template cast display.

9. Changed: Minor tweak to volume protection so that it works more evenly.

10. Fixed: Issues with the menu bar when entering and returning from fullscreen display view and theater view modes on MacOS 13 and above.

I tested it by switching MC into Display View (the version with the player bar locked in place) and then clicked on the Green Resize Button to remove the player bar. The MC window automatically redrew itself so that the top of the window was still just under the Menu Bar but the bottom of the window moved down from just above the dock to the bottom of the screen. Now for the good news when I went hunting for the Player Bar as soon as I got the Mouse Pointer close to the join between the MC Window and the Mne Bar it dropped into place, Prior to MC 32.0.25 the main MC window zoomed off to the right to reveal the Player Bar.

I then encountered something unexpected, whilst in Display View with the Player Bar "docked" I detached the "Display Panel" MC immediately switched into Standard View with the small detached "Display Panel" towards the bottom of the upper panel, I could not move it nor use the resizing handles and the only right-click option available was the one to re-attach it, which I did.

I then switched back into "Display View" and this time it opened full screen, but no matter how much I tried I could not get the Player Bar to put in an appearance, so I used Cmd+1 to get back to Standard View which opened with both the Menu Bar and Dock in their respective places on the screen.

Cover View also suffers from the "Player Bar" never appears problem when moving the mouse to the edges of the MC Window.

Oh Apple are up to their strange habits again - They've released a new version of Sonama 14.4 as 14.4.1 - thankfully it appears not to have done any damage to MC32.
