Mac users can now enable their App Menu in Shift without it breaking.
Resolved: A space appears between the compact sidebar and the Search box in Shift.
Resolved: An error will show in Shift if an image with a space in its name is uploaded.
Any spaces in image names are converted to dashes (-) automatically so they may be uploaded.

Users can now more easily navigate within Shift with help text explaining what each icon represents.
