i'm using propane 1.3.4 on mac os x 10.9.4 and have set some message alerts (attached file). whenever someone types my name, the message is highlighted green, but there is neither a sticky growl notification nor does the dock item bounce.

what am i doing wrong?

best regards

    Hi Hannes,

    I don't see anything wrong in the screenshot, but there are two other possible explanations for why you're not being alerted.

    1) Anything that you type will not trigger your notification sounds, bounces or notification-center alerts. The rationale there is that Propane doesn't need to tell you what you just typed.

    2) Your global notification settings (as seen in the screenshot) can be overridden by per-room notification settings.

    To check the 2nd possibility, make sure that the chat room you've been testing is selected in Propane and then, from the main menu, select the Room->"Edit Room Notification Settings" menu.

    When I do that, the presented sheet looks like this:

    Is the "use the default alert settings" checkbox on or off for your test room?

    Hey Trevor,

    thanks for your help. The Checkbox is on for the chatroom.
