Border Padding Issue

Avatar from Gravatar.com

I am new to Display Fusion - I'm having a few issues with Border Padding...

I had tweaked the border padding to test out what it would look like, but I have an application that is going a little off (AUTOCAD) so I need to change this back to default.

DisplayFusion Pro Settings>> Windows 10>> Adjust the window border size:>>

Whenever I press on "Defaults" the values go to Border: 1, Padding: 4
But when I press OK or Apply the values change to Border: 0, Padding: 2

I really need my Borders and Padding to go back to windows standard. Is there a work around to this apparent bug?

I am running 2 momitors with 3840 x 2160 resolution, windows 10 steam install, NVIDIA K2200 - Please let me know if you need any more info.

ANy help would be greatly appreciated :)

I'm also having another issue - but I am not sure if it's related to the border padding issue above (Please let me know if I should start a new Discussion)

I am getting a strange line on Windows Explorer Window:
see image 1

If I hide the ribbon and then unhide the strange line dissapears (until i click on something else)...
see image 2

This only started when I installed DisplayFusion - could it be related to the border padding issue above?
I would test myself, but the border padding is stuck at it's current settings and I am unable to change them.

Any help is greatly appreciated :)

Strange that they won't go back to the defaults! I've tested here and it seems to work for me. If you do a reboot and try again, is it still broken?

Ok, I have fixed the issue.
Re-installing didnt work - as DisplayFusion didnt perform a clean install.
My previous settings were still there and hitting retore all to defualts still didnt change the two default values for Border and Padding.

A combination of changing resolution/display scaling and using values other than defualt in DisplayFusion. i.e any values I tried to apply for Border and Padding, would change these values to something else. I had to find the right combination between the two values so that when I pressed ok it set them as Border 1, Padding 4.
Very strange. I have saved my settings now so hopefully I will be able to revert if this ever happens again.

The strange line mentioned in my second post have also been resolved

Excellent, glad to hear it! That border padding setting is calculated by Windows when we pass the values to it, so it can sometimes produce weird results.

I'm thinking we should probably just remove it altogether, since it's not very reliable.
