After update compatibility settings no longer work on borderless fullscreen application

Before the update to 9.8 I used the compatibility setting "Disable Application Hooks" to prevent my borderless windowed game from being forced into my main zone, and instead allow it to automatically span the entire monitor. No that longer works and it makes me cry. It doesn't listen to shortcut either. Does anyone know how I can make my borderless windowed game span the fullscreen and ignore zones?

Hello,

Strange, does the issue persist if you disable application hooks globally, in the DisplayFusion Advanced Settings window?

Thanks!

Yes. It appears to... but then Display Fusion loses most of it's functionality.

This is happening with Final Fantasy XIV. In the compatibility settings I have it set as ffxiv_dx11.exe.
The game will start spanning the entire screen. At some point, usually in the first ten minutes it will snap to my main monitor split. If I go into the game settings at this point and set it to full screen, hit apply, and then go back into setting and change to borderless window it will go back to spanning the full screen for the rest of the sessions until I exit and relaunch.
I haven't been able to identify if I'm doing something to cause it to snap to my monitor split.

Hello,

I've attached a link below to roll back to v9.7.1. Can you confirm for me that it works fine after rolling back?

Thanks!

Thank you for this link. I've downgraded and it works! My windowed fullscreen does not get snapped into the split.

Hello,

Interesting, I've attached 3 links below from some of our betas in between v9.7.1 and v9.8. Could you try those out and let me know if / which ones cause the issue again?

Thanks!
