Vuo just creates the files and tells Finder to use its icon for them. Perhaps it's related to the number of files in that folder? We also noticed that the Dropbox green checkmarks sometimes appear slightly later than the filenames themselves, so maybe Dropbox's Finder integration is slowing the process down? Perhaps try temporarily disabling that to see if it speeds up Finder (Uncheck System Preferences > Extensions > Dropbox Finder Extensions)?

Yes, this bug will be fixed in Vuo 2.0.

Jean Marie commented on marcorexo1's Feature Request, “Keeping event port visible


Thanks for your input. We've gotten feedback from the community that refresh ports didn't add to their understanding of nodes, and that some members found them confusing. Vuo nodes execute when they receive events to any input port, so refresh ports are not essential.

Although some members of the Vuo community may have some textual programming background, many do not. Several members have asked us for simplified nodes, and removing visible refresh ports is one way we have simplified the the node presentation.

System Preferences that might affect this:

  • Mission Control > When switching to an application, switch to a Space with open windows for the application

  • Mission Control > Displays have separate Spaces

We tested ShowWindowsOn2Screens with Vuo 2.0.0-beta2, with all 4 permutations of the above settings, and it works properly — each window goes fullscreen on a separate screen; no need to move each window to each screen first.

Can you share a composition that exhibits the problem, and share how you have those System Preferences settings set, and maybe include a video (probably using an iPhone camera would be the easiest way to record both screens)? That way we can get a better idea of how to diagnose the problem.

Thanks for noting this! We'll fix it for Vuo 2.0.
