3.3.0 no longer respects HKCU\...\MinWidth?

I have Window's native taskbar buttons set to as wide as possible, via HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics\MinWidth

DisplayFusion Pro 3.2.0 would use the value stored there to set its own button width ( I've just updated to 3.3.0 and button width is now 160 again. Is this a regression or some bug on my system?

Are you using the DF taskbar button grouping, and which version of Windows are you using?

Windows 7 x64 SP1

I'm not sure what you mean by DF's taskbar button grouping. Taskbar buttons are set to show icons and text. When I check the troubleshooting tab, it has this:



***** Taskbars *****************************************

Good news, I found the issue and it has been fixed for the upcoming Beta 1. :) Just enable the auto-updates for Betas and you'll get a notification when it's released.

Updated. It works great now!

But there's an error when installing; it prompts that it can't find the previous language (English United States); apparently it is now just "English" (Canadian flag)? I'm in the UK at the moment so the beta updater may be downloading the wrong language. No idea if this is expected behavior.

Attempting to change languages back to English (United States) gives this error:

Language file missing keys:
- frmErrorMessage_btnCopy
- frmErrorMessage_btnMoreInformation
- frmSettingsCompatibility_lblTitleBarButtonOffsetMax
- frmWallpaper_lblInfoType
- frmWallpaper_lblNoteImageInfo
- frmWallpaper_pageInfo
- frmWallpaper_rdoInfoBottomLeft
- frmWallpaper_rdoInfoBottomMiddle
- frmWallpaper_rdoInfoBottomRight
- frmWallpaper_rdoInfoTopLeft
- frmWallpaper_rdoInfoTopMiddle
- frmWallpaper_rdoInfoTopRight
- frmWallpaper_InfoType_Filename
- frmWallpaper_InfoType_FilenameAndPath
- frmWallpaper_InfoType_None
- frmWallpaper_InfoType_Title
- frmWallpaper_InfoType_TitleAndFilename
- frmWallpaper_InfoType_TitleAndFilenameWithPath
- Words_NeedProLong

the version number on all the other languages is; the version number on English (Canada) is, so I'm guessing it is probably just missing strings for the beta. The error message when updating was unexpected, though.

Sorry, the language thing was an issue with Beta 1 that is fixed for Beta 2. :)
