Yosemite Bug: Beware The Ever-Expanding Save Sheet

500

Jason Snell, my former colleague with IDG and the proprietor of Six Colors, highlighted a funky bug that affects the sheet that slides out when you try to save a file to disk:

“This morning I tried to save a file in BBEdit, only to discover that I couldn’t see half of the save sheet—it was so large, it went off the bottom of the screen.

It turns out—and thanks to Jon Gotow of St. Clair Software, maker of the excellent Default Folder X, for the answer to this—that there’s a bug in Yosemite that causes a sheet to grow taller by 22 pixels every time you use it.”

Well. That’s…not good. If you’ve run into this problem, Jason posts how you can work around this annoying—though oddly amusing—bug.
