Bug: Images loaded from wrong folder

Carsten Franke

Hi Jon,

I've set up two monitors and I want to use a random background for each.
Monitor 1p gets folder A, B, C and D.
Monitor 2 gets folder A, B and C.

Monitor 2 shows me pictures from folder D. Possibly some variables were not reset correctly.

Best regards,
Carsten

Hi Carsten,
It looks like you've been busy putting DisplayFusion through it's paces! I am unable to reproduce the problem you are talking about. I set 3 folders, 2 of which are assigned to the first screen and all 3 are assigned to the second. Nothing from the 3rd folder ever appears on the first screen. Are your folders nested at all? Are some of them sub-folders? DisplayFusion recurses through all the sub-folders, not just the top-level one you select. Let me know if it is still happening.

Thanks,
Jon

Ah! That's it. Nowhere was mentioned that you read the selected directories recursive. That's the solution.

Thanks for this advise.

I'm glad to hear you got your issue sorted out. Actually, when you click the "Add Folder" button in the dialog that appears it says "Sub-folders will be included automatically". I am still working on the online documentation though and I'll be sure to include this note.

Thanks!
Jon
