What if we bought it on steam? Do we download the update from you or wait till it's posted on steam?
@JC: You can just hit the Check for Updates button in the DisplayFusion Settings, or download it from us if you like. It will also be available in Steam itself today or tomorrow.
I love the new mouse features! I haven't been able to scroll a background window since my Linux desktop days, and I love it!
split monitor new feature, reeeealllyy cool, I was using diffirent program to do that by now.
Are the mouse features available in the free version? I don't see a "Settings Window Management" option in the free version.
@David: The Mouse Management features are Pro only. If you'd like a new 30-day trial key, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll send one over
@Jake and mike: Glad to hear it!
Aaand Display Fusion delivers again! The ability to lock the mouse to a single monitor with a press of a button, just what you need with older games in multi monitor environment I've been forced to use some crappy software for this until now.
For everyone having multiple monitors, I'd say that Display Fusion Pro is a MUST to have, and definedly worth of every penny.
I've been using the Pro for years now without a single problem with it, so HUGE THANKS for you guys and keep up the good work!
@Paul: Thanks, that's great to hear!
I didn't realize how bad I needed this new 5.1 unaligned monitor fix. Keep up the excellent, innovative work!
No discount for the Steam version?
@Tobias: Not at the moment. We ran one earlier this summer, but I'm sure there will be another one at some point
Excellent marketing there guys "All license types are discounted by 25% until September 9th!" and then when you go to purchase it on September 9th, the sale is already over.
Be clear in your communication - "until September 9th" means that on September 9th you should be able to purchase at a discount. Normal marketing & sales generally show the customer the last available date you can purchase something at a discounted price.
This appears to be an example of a bait & switch to me. It seems like you have until the 9th to make a decision, and then when you wait to evaluate the product and try to purchase on the 9th... Surprise, the sale is already over. Please buy at full price!
Maybe I'll just find a competitor software that has the features I need instead.
@Brian: My apologies, it wasn't worded very well. We will gladly extend the sale to anyone who missed it for the next 24 hours. Just email us at email@example.com with the license type you are interested in.
When I buy the steam version....
Does steam have to run in background all the time
(steam is only started here when really needed, I avoid background tasks)
You just need to install it via Steam. After that, DisplayFusion will run without having Steam running in the background.
Great update, guys. Thanks for the continuing good work, your software makes my life so much easier!
@Akram: Thanks, glad to hear it!
If you can figure out how to bring independent scaling to multiple monitors in Windows 8.x (think one HiDPI and one "legacy") so that I don't have to suffer the horrors of the linked DPI-dependent scaling (which only works for apps that already play nice on HiDPI) or the equal horror of linked scale factor. I will be filled with the type of undying gratitude that makes me want to donate 10 licenses to a worthy charitable cause...
@Kevin: That would be an awesome feature indeed, but as far as we know, it's not possible to do independent DPI scaling with third-party software due to technical limitations. Windows 8.1 sort of has independent DPI scaling built-in, but it's really clunky
