Can window position include back/front information?

Window position save/restore seems to include x/y position and height/width, but not front/back "layer" information. I want an easy way to save and restore my windows on the fly, including bringing the same windows to the front again. Basically, I'm working on three types of documents, and if I need to go to a different application temporarily, I want a way to save my current window positions, do what I need to do with other applications, and then get back to where I was automatically with a keystroke.

I don't think Window profiles are the right solution for me since the windows aren't always the same document/file, and aren't always the same application. Is there any way to do this with DF?

We may be able to store the z-order actually. I've added this to our feature request list, and if we're able to implement it in a future version, we'll definitely let you know.

Regarding the issue of different files being open, you can still use Window Position Profiles. You can edit the entries in the Profile and just remove the file name, that way that entry will apply to all windows that match the window text without the file name (e.g. all windows that match the text "Microsoft Word."

Hope that helps!

That is helpful, but unfortunately my use case requires 2 Acrobat windows at once. Can that work with profiles? If so, what if there are more Acrobat windows open also?

It would only work if they were always the same files open in the Acrobat windows. If it's not the same file, there's no way for DisplayFusion to identify the window. i.e. an entry in the Window Position Profile can either apply to all Acrobat windows, or one Acrobat window with a specific file open.

OK, if that's the case, then *please* mark adding z-info to the request list! I'm sure people will find many uses for being able to record/set that information.

Yep! I've already added that to our feature request list :)

Thanks!
