Can't set custom wallpaper

I'm finding that I can't set my custom wallpaper. I can reproduce the symptom like this:

  1. Choose Use Local Image or Desktop Image
  2. In the Open dialog, select a file and hit Open
  3. The dialog closes but the wallpaper doesn't change, I'm sent back to Preferences

Is this a known issue? I'm running Live Desktop 1.2, Mac OS X 10.10.3 on MacBook Pro Retina 13" Late 2013.

    same here. MBA 2012 mid with OSX 10.10.3, Live Desktop 1.2.
    Am guessing something's wrong with latest update.

    Yes, unfortunately it will only be fixed when the next build is released.

    Hi Vasco,

    When did you download the application? Recently or did you upgrade to the new version?

    Let me know,

    Hi James,

    I recently downloaded this version. I had other version that I could change the background, after an update I couldn’t change the wallpaper so I remove it. After a while I downloaded this last version but still the same.

    Best regards,
    Vasco Rebelo
