    hi all..

    I've just added multiple folders to Folders section, under System Preferences, but it seems they don't remain sticky...

    In fact after adding multiple folders, closing down System Preferences, then going back to check, only one folder is listed....

    Anyone know why this is the case ? As i would want to have multiple folders listed so i can choose (if i want) rather than add at will.

    Also, When chewing the "Random" option does it only change for that folder, or for any folders ? Assuming System Preferences stays open, or it even works this way.

    It seems to be a 10.8 bug... It was there in the developer versions as well.

    This bug appeared in later point releases of 10.7 (when you do a clean install) I think it was 10.7.3, so its been broken for a while.

    There are other bugs regarding the desktop background preferences under 10.8 as well, such as right clicking to open from the desktop a second time doesn't open the window. Also the background may revert to a previously set background on restarting OSX.

    At-least when I used to use the random option I'm pretty sure it was only for the currently selected folder.

    Hmmm I only say it in the ML dev preview onward... and haven't noticed the of the other bug you mentioned (Except for the wallpaper resetting, but that seems to have resolved itself for me when I bought ML on release day) :confused:


    Anyway, OP you can submit a bug report here http://www.apple.com/feedback/macosx.html
